I mow a townhome association and I've had several residents ask if I can trim their shrubs around their properties. I charged $15.00/shrub for two large burning bushes.

Now I have another resident who would like her globe arborvitaes trimmed (about 3-4 ft) and shaped up along with a larger one. She has a total of 18 small shrubs and 1 larger one. I planned on charging $5 per small shrub and $15 for the larger one bringing her total to $105. I don't think it will take too long, maybe 45 minutes to an hour. Does this sound too low, too high?? Thanks.

I try to bid everything on time. If you think you can do this in an hour then that is good money.

Excuse me Mr. Rockefeller. 105 a man hour for a pure labor job is too low for you? That's a fair price.

Sounds fair , but asking pricing online will only make you doubt yourself. Good luck.

How is 105 dollars for an hour of one man's labor, no materials needed, too low?:usflag:

I didn't not see that it would you take 45 minutes to an hour. $105 is a fair price. Does that include dump fees?

Besides the point. He said 45 min to and hour.

Who are we to dispute his time estimate?

Maybe he is leaving the clippings as mulch.

Sounds like you will make $105...

However 3' may be low for the arborvitae.
