Maybe you could charge by the foot, or the time it takes, I'm not really sure about that.

I know stihl, and echo, make good gas edgers, allong with redmax and some others.

I'm in Mass, too. I get $1 per foot for new beds. Refreshing an old bed is 50 cents. If a customer had 500+ feet of edging, I will discount.

I just use a Stihl stick edger to cut a smooth line, then dig, rake and blow out the backside. Trenchblades work pretty good, they cut a thicker line than a straight edger blade. Sometimes (if there is room) I'll run several passes with the edger with Trenchblades while my helper blows it clear with the backpack.
