    Edging depends on how frequent they want you to do it. If it's every week, the first time will be the only time it takes any effort. If they want it done once a month, charge them almost as much as you do for mowing, as it is quite time consuming.

    Mulching, I charge about $100/yd for mulch which includes the mulch, delivery, installation, and spraying for weeds in the beds.

    Weeding - not sure what you mean by this, weed control in the lawn or in the beds? Doing it by hand or by a liquid/granular product?
