First of all I would not take a job weeding a 500 sq.ft bed.

I have not weeded alot of beds at that price,but the ones
that I did were really out of hand.

I don't like weeding,if im gona do it im getting paid.

I do no weed with a weed eater ,I pull the weeds by hand

If there is a large amount of weeds then I may need to spray and then return
Nutsage needs MANAGE and a return trip.

We just did a fairly large weeding, redging, and mulching job. The weeding alone was $925. We filled up a 8 x 18 foot deckover trailer with 4' sides twice. The weeding alone took 20.5 man hours

Was it worth the money,or would you charge more the next time?

When beds are out of hand the work,and hours can add up.

It was well worth the money.

Along with the weeding, I got .85 per foot for edging (over 800 feet) and 62 yards of mulch installed at $75 per yard.
