How do you figure a price for trimming bushes and what is the best way to figure how long it will take. I have a customer that wants bushes trimmed and i have no idea how to price it. Please help

You will have to quote an hourly rate. What you think needs to be cut off and how the customer will want the final cut to look are two very different things. Cover your bases so that when they say more still needs to come off, you won't feel pressed to rush, take your time on their dime, do it right.

Let them know you are a professional, and you charge x/hour.

Are you sheering off and shapeing a hedge?,or just trimming off some wayward growth?Are you deadheading off dead flowers on huge bushes?Or topping a row of Photinia?Will you need power equipment or will you use just hand tools?Need more info can't help with a price without it every job is different.
