    How do you plan on 'weed eating' by the square foot?

    Wouldn't it be easier to figure it using a time factor?
    If it takes 20 minutes to trim, and you're already there = $
    If it takes 20 minutes to trim, and that's all you're doing, and made a trip just to do the trimming = $ (they couldn't afford me unless they were gold weeds) in this case, I'd treat it as a lawn service for pricing depending on how much total time involved.

    Is this a residence, a shopping mall, etc. it all depends on whether this is a real job or one that's going to cost you more than it's worth to do.

    Not knowing how bad or high the weeds are, IMO I would just price it hourly...easy enuff.
