View Full Version : estimating lawn clean up

07-16-2008, 01:56 AM
I am looking at a job where the customer wants their lawn cleaned up, there are about a few saplings that need cut down, a few trees that need cut up, tall grass that needs trimmed, plants moved, and they want the grass at the base of a chain link fence either cut or taken out. I haven't the foggiest idea on how to estimate this job. I will upload a few pictures of the area. in a day or two, but i was hoping that i could get some input on estimation. they also have an aluminum pool that they want removed, should i subtract the price received for scrap from the total cost.

No, you shouldn't deduct for the scrap. In fact, you should charge extra to haul it off, then get the scrap money as a bonus. Are you going at it solo, or will you have a helper?
