    Hey Ted,

    If you have to proper license you could spray a non-selective herbicide to kill the grass, be careful as it does tend to kill anything it touches!! lol Best bet, if there is not a whole crap load of grass would be, yes, just pull it. With the non-sel. you would still have a whole bunch of dead grass in the flo beds, not very attractive if you ask me. My rate is 42.5/per man per hr. So if its just you and its gonna take you two hours....85 bucks. Best i can do for ya.

    Best of luck!

    What ever you do charge for it. If its not apart of your agreement then notify your customers before you begin to do it and CHARGE them for it.
