    bill as i said almost no companies where i am do this.

    from upstarts to companies with multiple crews. ive worked for companies that did 10 million dollar homes-no edging. ive never used an edger nor seen one being used. by anyone. i do see the odd house with it done, but it never catches on.

    i dont think of my self as a half ass cutter. and i know that the huge estate market companies around here don't think off themselves as half ass cutters.

    i wont add such a service without CHARGING for it. and right now i don't see the need.

    i guess my market is different from yours.

    unbelievable, eh?:rolleyes:

    We edge asphalt,concrete, and all beds. No exceptions. It is included in our prices. We use to give customer option but now when I bid on a job I include it in the price.

    You're right. Don't do anything for free.
    Not saying you're not a pro, just take the opportunity to set yourself apart. You have to admit that an edged lawn looks much better than the lawns that aren't.
    Take care, Bill!

    I edge everything, everytime. If not, it looks like a 3 year old was doing the job. I can't stand to see grass growing over onto the sidewalks and curbs.
