    What do you guys charge for tilling? Use any size bed or amount of time to estimate. I'm just wondering if I should include tilling in my startup. Barefeet, what is the rate for tilling in your neck of the woods?

    The only time I really use tilling is when I am redoing the soil in a garden or a lawn. In other words, not very often. I charge a minimum amount - in my case $50 - then go from there based on hours - usually $30/hour or thereabouts. So even if I only till for one hour, I still make $50, and two hours makes $80, etc. Hope that helps.
