Try to figure what you want to make in lets say a 9 hour day.If your goal is $600 a day and it takes you 3 hours then charge$200. 6 hours charge $400. 9 hours $600. But you need to know how long the jobs will take. Just a gauge to go by, only you know what you want to make. Remember though, base your hours on portal to portal this way your covered for travel time, disposal, etc. so you can do three $200 jobs a 9 hour day. I always know what my daily goal is and price jobs to meet it.

Lets say you do 100 shrubs in 3 hours,

(Includes clean up and disposal.)

65.00 per hr. = 195.00

Dear Lawnpro (there's a stretch)

If you're doing this job solo it's going to take all day with the cleanup and you're going to be dead tired by the time it's finished. Charge accordingly.
