    I have a couple of customers that want me to do regular maintenance work. For instance, one guy wants us to come out every two weeks and weed/poison weeds in the new beds we put in. Another wants us to come by monthly and trim hedges and still another wants us to drop by monthly just to check things out and do whatever needs done.

    My problem is knowing how much to charge? Help I need some good advice.

    For the regular maintenance work that I do for the customers, I charge an hourly rate. As for as appling weed killer to the landscape beds, you would need to be licenced for that. If you don,t have a licence, then you could go every two weeks and do the weeding and charge by the hour.

    Exactly what Premo said, right on the mark.
