    About $3.25 per foot. Debris removal is extra.

    $3.25 is for creating a new bed edge with a Trenchmaster edger. Price goes down to about $2.20 per foot when we do more than 500 feet. Most of the work is commercial or high end residential.

    I was thinking 1.25 a foot for edging. Give or take a few cents.

    We include bed edging once a season with out spring cleanups. We don't charge by linear ft, but rather on an hourly charge while we are on the property. :)

    There is no way you are getting $3.25 a ft. It would be nice but if I charged $3.25 a ft. That means the "high end" residential I just signed would be charged $2275.00 just to edge his flower beds. Around here its more like, $0.75 if that.
