    Those of you guys who mow commercially how do you price edging? By the foot or just by the job?

    Ok thanks for the info. But I guess I should have asked a more specific question. If bidding by the foot whats an average rate. I have a few commercial accounts but they are small in size, some props. I will be bidding on next week have several hundred feet of edging.

    Your not being rude,LOL This reality company's bid sheets are from very bored attorney, I'm guessing. I edge every one of my accounts weekly or as needed. But I am bidding on a larger Dr. office building tomorrow and there is probably about 400ft of curbs that are edged. They are unhappy with their company they have now. But I have heard .50 to 2.00 per foot so I have no idea what a normal rate is.
