Price for bagging lawns?

If you guys bag, do you charge per catch with the bagger or do you just add on 10 dollars.Or do you charge say 3 dollars per bagger catch. I have a customer that just wants his front bagged. Says we are causing weeds to grow from the neighbors yard. I belive it is sedgeweed. I don't bag any lawns at all untill leaf season and then that is added in as part of work being done on the hourly charge.

Thanks,

I bag all lawns unless the customer tells me not to. It does take more time, but it looks a lot cleaner and doesn't really cost that much more to do. Just a little more time. I know a lot of people mulch, but any mulching i've done has alwayed led to clumps. But depending on the size of the front yard i would probably charge an extra $5 to $10. Doing a little extra to keep the customer happy is always worth the hassel.
