    Sounds fair if you get it at that price. What if it takes you 3 hours?

    he told me to just come and do it and to charge him a fair price for doing it. if it took 3 hour i would charge a little bit more. but shouldnt take that long i use the edger for my trimmer to make a trench for the edging to go into.

    :blob2: :cry: :alien: :blob3: :angry: :confused: :blob2: :drinkup: :gunsfirin :dizzy: :sleeping: I agree with you. Do the job and charge what you can.That way you could half the price and still over charge.
