Ive searched and found a few possible answers. Please dont flame me for asking.

So I have a few new prospects and I would really like to earn their business. Ive been told in the past that I am too expensive. $30/100'

Now Ive seen on here some of you are charging 0.15/foot to 0.25/foot or $20/100'

where do you stand on pricing for edging?

Driveways/walkways?
around trees?
around flower beds?

Some prospects have edged these in the past and some have never edged these before.

What we can tell you is everyone has there standards you have to know how much money you need to make an hour to operate your business then you can feel comfortable about telling a customer a price and not thinking you are to expensive. Around here everyone is around .25 cents a foot so $200/100' Is fair but you should be @ @25/100'. If you would like to know more on how to find out to find your hourly rate shoot us an email and we will be glad to assist you.
