    It all depends on how you are going to do it and what it entails. For example, I use a Turf Teq bed edger and I would charge $0.25 a foot for bed edging only. There would be an extra charge to remove the dirt. I know that $0.25 sounds cheap, but when you edge 700 feet in 30 minutes you make out. If it is a contract customer that I am installing mulch for, I do the edging for free because it makes it easier for me to trim throughout the season.

    if im creating a bed and not just redefining one i charge one dollar a foot. this is the shovel method i dont have a bed edger. if im just redefining its usually a mulch job and ill just tack on whatever i feel is necessary

    if you have a stick edger you should check out the trenchblade, it is better that using a shovel for sure.

    Here is a cool product from ECHO. I saw it advertised on the left side of this website with the other advertisers. It sure beats a shovel and it is a lot less money than the other edgers I have seen. Plus, it doesn't take up any more space on the trailer than a trimmer or an edger. I saw one in person at my dealer's open house and they were selling it for $650.

    This link has a video of it in action:

    I know you are a sponsor and everyone seems to have nothing but positive things to say about your product...but how does this answer the posters questions on pricing?
