    When measuring edging do you count both sides of the sidewalk considering you have to edge both sides? I measured the sidewalk - it's 900 feet do I quote him at 900 feet or 1800 feet? New to business, if you couldn't tell already. Thanks for the help!

    Tank, It is by linear foot usually....I get $0.65/linft..........this generally covers blades, debris removal and disposal and final clean up....so for you that would be....$1170.00 total, sometimes I go hourly for large jobs no less than $35.00/hr(every hour) include cleanup and hauling and dump time and then add the fees for the dumpmaster.
