Ok....do you charge your power equipment rate for digging around in flower beds, weeding, shrub trimming and related maintenance activities the Mow and Blow companies avoid?

Years ago a poster said he charged considerably less to dig around in beds vs. his mowing rate. Could this be the reason so many are mow and blow only?

I do 45-55 depending on the location and time of season...i try mostly to do it once and up sell landscape fabric, new mulch, needle, or other media install, and then also some form of pre em. But deff. dont charge less..it is more work..less fuel and wear and tear..but more work
