    What is a good price to charge per linear foot of sidewalk cracks, and/ or ,mulch beds?

    I have heard 3 to 4 cents per linear. Is that a good price to go with?

    It can't be measured by the linear foot, because there may be alot more vegetation on one area to another. You have to charge it by the gallon and time.

    I charge $35.... but if a customer has little need, and I spend almost no time or material, I explain that they won't be billed even though it's on the state approved DEC contract.

    Most of my houses are grouped.... and they talk to each other. I simply explain.... YOU have rocks around your pool infested with weeds, and other spot spray locations.... Tom doesn't. He has some weeds along the curb. I'm not gonna hit him for 35 bucks for 25 cents of material and 3 minutes of my time.

    I generally charge 35...... and use less than a half gallon.

    If I have to make special trip $ 75.00 first backpack ( reguardless of amount used) and $ 60 each pro-rated after . If at jobsite already $ 60 for first.
