Help on Edging Labor Rates

Hi folks,

New to the forum here. I'd like to get an idea of what rates to charge for bed edging. This would be for recutting beds and cleanup. Since I have a machine, I would think rate/linear foot would be best. Can you give me some numbers please?

thanks much

You have to pick and hourly rate that your comfortable with for all your work. If you use a special machine like a bed edger you add in a usage rate like $50.00 for half day. Keep your hourly the same less confusion.
