    Hi folks,

    New to the forum here. I'd like to get an idea of what rates to charge for bed edging. This would be for recutting beds and cleanup. Since I have a machine, I would think rate/linear foot would be best. Can you give me some numbers please?

    thanks much

    $0.50 per lineal foot.

    You have to pick and hourly rate that your comfortable with for all your work. If you use a special machine like a bed edger you add in a usage rate like $50.00 for half day. Keep your hourly the same less confusion.
