edging included in your weekly pricing?

Interested in what all of you do. Do all of you include edging in your weekly pricing of lawn care or do you charge extra when it needs to be done?

My weekly price includes mowing, trimming, edging, blowing, cleaning out and weeding flowerbeds, and trimming hedges as needed. I do this for the price most people charge for just mow, blow, and go.

If the lawn is growing it needs to edged every time you mow it so it's included in the price.
Mow edge and blow every time. Some weeding if it takes 3 min or less.

Included but I only do a few lawns that have a nice edge to maintain weekly. Most of the other lawns are mediocre homeowner lawns that I just trim.

Same here. On a few, I think that I'm the first person to ever even do the trimming.

If there's growth 2" out onto the sidewalk, I may charge a small fee for the initial edge and then maintain it (included) with the regular mowing schedule.

Yeah I add a small fee if it's like that as well
