    The job has already been completed but I wanted to know if my pricing was with in range.

    I did not measure before but I did in order to share it with y'all!

    Measurements: 322ft by 7ft

    We use weed burners all the time on rock. It's just a large propane blow torch. Works great, burns up weeds, debris, seeds. It leaves just fine ash you can blow out. Kills off most roots also. Bring a piece of metal flashing with to protect wanted bushes and plants from torch.

    Are those before or after pictures? If before there isn't that much weeds to to take care of. Like the others said a torch would make quick work of that bed. Hand pulling shouldn't take that long either.
