    Out of curiosoty, how does one go about pricing edging when a cust is already getting the mow/trim/blow service?

    In the market area I serve the lawn service only encompasses mow/trim/blow clippings. Even our high end accounts do not require edging, we therefore price our service without it.

    That being said when we are requested to edge it is an additional charge, for residential walks, beds, drives, etc. .85 per linear foot. We have one commercial account that includes edging, this is on a three year contract and has about 650 linear feet of edging 2006 $1.15 per linear ft 2007 $1.18 per linear ft. 2008 $1.22 per linear ft. This is scheduled to be done ten times per season.
