I have a customer that has recently bought a house and is trying to fix it up to resell it. The gardens have been over grown for many years with no or little attention. I am wondering what a decent price would be i have a number in my head and just wondering what other guys would charge for somthing like this. There is also a tree that has to be taken down in the back yard. If anyone has any type of help that would be greatly appreciated. I have to haul all the old brush out as well.

I would say 1.5X what ever you were originally thinking would be a good price. Jobs like that always always take longer than you think.

Are you taking everything out and redoing it or just taking everything out?

Do you pay to dump or got a place of your own. That looks like a lot of hauling.....

Do stumps need to come out as well? These jobs can be a bit hard to price but here is what I would charge:
$350 for the tree
$150 for each large shrub if that includes stumps
Total Probably around $800 can't tell how many large shrubs there are , but I'm guessing 3, I'm sure there is more, but that would be my price for 3 shrubs and the tree.
All Hauling included, Me and my guy could knock it out in a day.
Here's a trick so you don't get charged as much. Pack as much brush in your trailer as possible, then get up on it with your saw and cut horizontally. You wanna fit as much in their as possible so you don't get charged with as much dumping, because then you would be cutting down on your profit a lot. Last weekend I fit a tree that size that was still alive in my 5x8 and put some logs in my truck bed. I wish I would have had pictures, it was packed FULL! Saved me an extra trip and a lot of money though. Let's hear some other input, I know my bid isn't low, but I'd come out good and It would probably still be less than a tree service. Good luck!

I will be using a 14ft dump trailer with sides to haul everything out. I wont be replacing anything right now all he is looking for is to get cleaned and looking somewhat presentable.
