Thanks Mike I forgot to mention there was some ivy trimming/leveling also made easy with Echo extennted shaft trimmer. The work was for an FSBO/agent the $395.00 I thought was a little low $440.00 was on the high end. That is still a little lower than your quote. I will give the numbers some thought but there has been quite bit of work performed so far (other property jobs) and with the leafs starting to fall don't want to scare him off. I am charging about $35.00 an hour for labor. Thanks again.

Do you find that it is very hard to get some home owners to part with 10-20 year old plants as though it was a family member....roll it into the next Mortgage payment:)

So tell me Mike, how much were the evergreens you quoted this guy?

Just curious if your nursery prices are in the same ballpark...:rolleyes:
