    I have a potential commercial job that needs alot of weed pulling about 10167sqft of beds plus a refresh of mulch (looking at starting with 50yds at $4000.00 for the mulch). The question I have is figuring what to charge for all the weeds. Any help would be appreciated, thanks Neil

    Can you spray or are you talking about hand weeding?

    Agreed. $30-40 an hour would be reasonable, I think.

    LOL, who weeds beds anymore? Add an application of snapshot or treflan into your estimate and be done with it.

    1. Weed wack/pick the big ones
    2. Blow debris back in..or out depending on volume
    3. Apply pre/post
    4. Mulch
    5. Bill the same amount; but for your professional knowlege instead of labor
    6. It's never that clear cut and dry
