    When making the first presentation to a potential customer.Do you price the grass cutting separate,then offer a list of options, like edging,cut/vac,leaf cleanup?
    Thanks Bedbug

    When I give a residential customer a price, it includes the edging. In most cases I hit everything with a stick edger every other week to keep it looking good.

    If there is BAD overgrowth, I'll charge a little more for the first time, due to the extra time and having to remove and dispose of the sod. After that, no extra charge. If it's done enough, I can run down the sidewalk with the stick edger.

    Anything else you mention(hedge trimming, weeding, cleanups) is extra.
