I have a potential commercial job that needs alot of weed pulling about 10167sqft of beds plus a refresh of mulch (looking at starting with 50yds at $4000.00 for the mulch). The question I have is figuring what to charge for all the weeds. Any help would be appreciated, thanks Neil

Can you spray or are you talking about hand weeding?

Charge by the hour.

Agreed. $30-40 an hour would be reasonable, I think.

LOL, who weeds beds anymore? Add an application of snapshot or treflan into your estimate and be done with it.

1. Weed wack/pick the big ones
2. Blow debris back in..or out depending on volume
3. Apply pre/post
4. Mulch
5. Bill the same amount; but for your professional knowlege instead of labor
6. It's never that clear cut and dry

knock down weeds spray with non selective and prem mix come back in 7 to 10 days pull whats left mulch and snapshot over top the mulch. Then go back 10 days after mulch and spray the rest. If they want no chemical then I say bye bye. bill it all in the upfront cost also use a wick if they are bad if you pull they come back and then you pull again and they come back.
