If you were asked to bid a bank for edging only, no mowing.
Would you bid it by linear feet or what? And If so, how much per foot?

I will also be maintaining planting beds, but its the edging I was wondering about.

:eek: Well i have worked for banks and it was always about money. Anyway--- how many homes could you edge in the time it would take to edge the bank? I'm guessing about 2-3 homes. I will charge $10 to $15 to just edge an average house in my area. So I'd say $30 to $45.

I'm not sure about your areas (Fla. and La.), but around here edging is charged by the linear foot. I charge $1/ft and don't have any problem getting my price; especially when joe homeowner gets out there with a spade and finds out how much time and labor it takes.

Dito... Do you do it with a long handled flat spade?

No way. That's just too much work for me. I use a bed edger that I bought at Kenmulch, but charge the same as I would if I was doing it with a spade. After all, if the bed edger quits on me I'm going to end up doing the job by hand, and don't think a customer would appreciate/understand it if I changed the bid just because I no longer have that piece of equipment.

If the edging is bad say it haven't been edged in a while then I will bid by the hour because cleanup is involved.

I have a trim rite I use for the bad ones.
