    :dizzy: Was thinking on adding edging to my small potatoes bussiness what would be the best way to charged a customer for this service.

    You mean, you don't edge with the price you included?

    So you don't edge the sidewalks and driveway?
    WHY isn't this work included in your weekly service, price, and normal routine?

    On mine I do curbs, driveways, sidewalks, patio's, and whatever else may need it, it's called taking pride in your work and not letting someone else see what kind of shabby job you stick your name to. Doesn't matter if it's 10' or the entire city block (I have one of each of those).

    But that's just me!

    Edging the sidewalks and driveways is vertically trimming the grass.
    Normally I maintain them with my weedeater with the head turned sideways and about once a month I'll get the edger machine out and give them a good once over. It's about like a very nice weekly washing of a vehicle (trimming with a weedeater) and the once a month waxing (getting the edger machine out).
    If I had a stick edger I'd use it everytime.
