So, there is no telling what a fair price would be or how long it would have taken an experienced crew to do what took two guys 8 hours.

Maybe you should ask your customer how much the job done is worth to them. At least that way you will be able to work for them again.
That pretty much cover's it......

Agreed..... not greed

Ya we all come up with the customer who has weeding jobs. We all know that hand pulling usually results in them coming back at some time. If you look around their yard and there is obviously more work available, then maybe ask them what its worth and you will get a sense of price and the value of the landscape to to it's owner. If you charge them an arm and a leg you may never see them again as far as repeat biz.
