How much to charge for trimming these bushes?

I will need to use articulating hedge trimmers a lot with this job. These have not been trimmed in a few years.

1. 1 evergreen bush - 17' - long and 6' wide and 5' high. Will cut off about 2' from top and about 1' off the sides. Is overgrown on walkway.

2. 1 evergreen bush - 16' long and 8' wide and 11' high. Will cut 3' off top and trim sides about 1'.

3. 1 bush - 18' long and 9' wide and 10' high - Will cut 3' off top and 1' off sides.

4. 2 evergreen trees growing into each other. - 13' long and 13' wide and 11' high. Will take off about 2' all around about 2' off top.

5. 1 bush - 14' long and 9' wide and 6' tall. take about 2' off top and 1' off sides.

How many hours to do it and how much do you charge per hour?
