    I am sure you are not the only dog on the block to do weeding services. First thing is to know what you need for normal business operation and your profit margin you need for the cost of doing business per hour. Either you are hand weeding, using herbicide liquid or granular.......it doesn't matter as long as you price your base hourly rate plus materials. Tax according to your state or to commercial businesses.
    I charge 35.00 per man hour excluding debris removal and hauloff. I do not hand pull most weeds as it is futile with root matter still in the beds. I use herbicide liquid......then pull out the dead weeds and then use granular products to protect the customers beds. Remulch the beds 2-3 inches to ****** weed pressure.
    The mulch is extra of course......................!!!!
