    I'm new to landscaping. A customer wants me to build a large flower bed for her. Total SF = 450
    First, how much should I charge to build the bed? Digging, removing grass, and putting in metal edging. I will have 3 laborers on the job.
    Also, would it be recommended that I rent some mechanical equipment? What kind?

    Any ideas are much appreciated!

    $75 for sod stripping + whatever your disposal fee would be
    $400 for edging (I'm assuming $20 for 10 foot section of steel edging)
    $300 to incorporate 4 cubic yards of organic matter

    If I were doing the work myself I would edge by hand if I didn't have a bed edger
