    I have a customer that wants her flower beds hand edged with deep edges to help define them more. After i do this i am going to come back with some type of border type yet undecided around the beds to make them look better. There are 3 beds 1 about 12' by 3' and the other 2 about 12' by 5'. how should i go about pricing this and how much should i charge. I also have to collect and dispose of all the trash after edgeing. Thanks

    I myself would charge by the hour, and then add a fee on for disposal of the edging material. Basically, figure out what you need to get an hour including the fee for hauling it away.

    By the hour here also. I would also mark up the price of the new edging some.
