I received a call today from a lady who wants me to maintain her landscape bi-weekly. She has lots of shrubs,crape mertels and other plants. I was wondering on how would I go about pricing the service?

the age old equation-your hourly rate x how long you think the job will take.

One thing to be careful of. Certain plants need to be pruned a certain way. Some need hand pruning and need to be pruned in a particular way. Others you can take the trimmer to and get it done quickly. Make sure you go over all plants in the landscape and how they need to be taken care of.

Tell her you will spend 1 hour a week at her place for $75.00 per week.
