Price them per shrub. My prices range from $3/per shrub and up. Knee height...$3-$5, knee to waist...$6-$8, waist to shoulders...$9-$12, above shoulder height...more than $12. If it's a row of shrubs grown into a hedge...count how many individual shrubs make up the hedge and price it individually and add the total up for one whole price. Just easier than guess how long it's going to take in trimming "x" amount of shrubs, etc. This should get you a much ballpark estimate. Then add a removal/hauling/dump fee at the end of your total. But keep in mind...some shrubs are easier to trim than other and there are variables to consider. But this should get you started on estimating better.
