    Do you edge the curb near the road on normal jobs, ie. not high end. The jobs in this area will be about $35 -$45 for mow, trim, blow. Is it common to edge the curb at the street if you are edging the rest?

    Absolutely. Treat your low end jobs exactly as you would your nice properties. You never know where your next customer is lurking. Furthermore, be proud of your work and make the crappiest yard look the best you can.

    As the rest stated, yes, edging everything that is around the house. Its the little things like that, that people notice! I edge all my clients beds also, as long as there is not to many. I Have one that has over 2k sqft of beds those types I charge a bit more if they want their beds edged.

    Do you guys edge it with an actual edger?

    Nobody edges here but I have just sent out 30k flyers with Edging advertised anyway, I was hoping to establish the edge with an edger then maintain it with a Edgit. Good idea?

    Most of the time you will only have to do it once a year with a stick edger or wb. After that just use your trimmer.

    If you skip a week w/o edging here in FL... it will look nasty... specially on St. Augustine grass
