Brent, a good bed edger will probably run you about 1 grand or more. I dont know the price exactly off hand though, as I dont have a bed edger. That lawn install was very fun. It is in a new housing complex in Kent. So many of the neighbors were kicking themselves for not having us do their lawn instead of the other landscapers. We were able to cut the front lawn three, thats right, 3 WEEKS after I did the job. It feels like a nice, thick, lush carpeting. I am so proud of that, since it was my first job I did.

Brent, this is my first year in business, but have been doing this since I was 13. I am only 20 now. I took 3 years of horticulture in high school and also 4 years of business management as well. I love doing this, it is my long term career. Right now I do maintenance, clean ups, landscape/lawn installs, irrigation, snow and ice management, soon design and architecture when the wife gets herself into college for it and graduates. I guess you could say I am a full sevice company.

Hi fellas, what's happening on this Monday night? Went out and did the Monday route today. Everything needed cut but it sure was dusty out there. I think I inhaled a whole baseball diamond of dirt. Even though we are up 5 inches on precip here we need some rain to settle the dust and kick start the fert.Normally by now I am double cutting. But no way am going to complain about not having to do double cut. Cause when I have to double cut, I will complain then.

Lawn looks great good job on the install. You keep up the good quality work up there.
Dad
A bed edger will cost you any where from $1700.00 to $2200.00 (HYDRO).
It would be a good investment in the long run if you do alot of installs.

Guess we will have to raise those prices again. Just until those prices go back down.
