Installing trim job time?

My first job installing trim is going to be almost 1000 ft. I'm figuring about 5 foot per hour average. Does that sound about right? This estate has drip irrigation everywhere so we won't be able to just go gang busters and will have to be careful not to cut through the drip irrigation. Any advice would help!!!

sorry

I'm sorry most people call it edging. I often call it trim. Maybe I'm thinking about hot young trim too often. I want to install commercial grade edging and spike it every 2.5feet. I'm thinking about just doing it by the hour because this customer is ok with that but then for sure the most I will make is around 50/hr when I use 2 other guys with me. I'd love to make a little more than that since I will be there.
