Question What do I charge?

I have a fenced area which is about 2,000 ft linear ft long (total) and I have to weed wack along the fence and 3 ft before I get to the fence. What would you guys charge for a job like that?

weed eating

option 1. measure off an area 100' long and 3' wide and measure the amount of time it takes you to trim the measured area. Take the result and multiply it by 20. Convert the number to hours if you timed yourself in minutes. Multiply the result by your hourly rate (amount that you need to charge to cover your time, expenses and overhead and profit.).

option 2. call you competitor and ask what he would charge to weed eat the same area. This will do you as much good as asking someone on this site. It really doesn't make any difference what someone else would charge.
