    What do you guys charge for edging? is there a flat rate like mulch? I am looking for more of a flat rate or to maybe add it on to the mulching rate. let me know what you guys do.

    1.10-1.25 per foot depending on edge condition. Hand edging, deep and crisp with material removed and disposed of. Good luck.

    how does $80.00 for 14 yards of mulch sounds? hand edging is what i would do.

    For that price, I'll pay you an even $100 bill to come to Ohio...and do my personal house. :laugh:

    I usually edge by hand and remove the debris, that being said, when I bid jobs I look at the number of beds to do, size, and soil condition. Figure out how many hours you think, then add an extra hour or two. Something else to consider is if you remove the chopped out grass is disposal costs.

    That would cover about two yards!
