    I did a search and could not find what I was looking for. Can I get the going rate for edging along sidewalks and curbs? Any help would be great as I need to put something together for a customer. Thanks!

    if its a first time client and is badly overgrown, then i will charge a extra fee for edging, otherwise i include it in the price of mowing. i picked up a new client last month with st. aug. grass and they wanted me to edge around all their sprinkler heads...took me 45 minutes to do..i told them the extra fee and they said no problem...now i go every other mowing and edge around the heads, which is included in my mowing price and client is happy... customer comes first..unless of couse they are a pita....LOL

    I usually charge 25.00 per month for edging lawns. If the lawn has never been edged, the first time will be a lot of clean-up. After that, it usually takes me about 15 minutes a month to keep a nice clean edge. Hope this helps.

    I thank you guys for BOTH responses. However I am looking at how much to charge per foot! I know some of these old timers can help. Because I need it bad, as I am lost. We currently do not offer this service and we are having requests for it. Please help out this feller!!!

    No I dont edge the lawns. Nobody really does around here. Just had a couple inquireing about it and dont know much about it. I bought Stihl Kombi system last year thinking about starting to do it. And I need some rates from you guys on here.
