    I Haven't Been In The Business For Long. A Customer Wants Their Beds Redone On A House They Have For Sale. How Should I Charge Them? Whats The Going Rate?

    I would start by removing all the weeds, trimming all bushes, edging the beds, etc. and then measure areas to determine how much mulch you will need.
    The charge for weeding, trimming would be around 35-45 per hour.
    The charge for mulching the beds would be around 80.00 per yaed.

    Since you have not done this yet, I would charge per hour for the weeding and trimming and then by the yard for mulch.

    REMEMBER it will take longer than you think it will to do the weeding, trimming
    And whatever you do put in your estimate/proposal that they sign, that payment is to be paid after job is complete.
