what do yall think???

I have to meet with a client on cleaning 2 15x20 courtyards. This is what she told me over the photo

things to do

clean out the whole court yards she said that they had not been cleaned in about 1 year.( sticks,leaves) They have around 10 4-5 foot tall red tips that are dead but she wants them taken out. Everything must be taken away from the location. I have not seen the area but I will on friday so I didnt give a price.

my ??? is what would some of yall chage for something like this.. I kind of have an idea but this is my first job like this and I dont want to get bent over. It only going to be me and myself.

Hard to say without seeing it. Do you know how deep the leaves and sticks are? Could be 4 inches or 3 feet. Also what is your dumping fee? Also your gas to drive there and back to dump. Do not let leaves fool you! They may not look bad in the pics but go look at it and see how deep and wet the leaves are. I lost my arse more than once on not checking out leaves real good to see how compacted and wet they were and wind up taking 4 times longer than I estimated. Dont be scared to bid high, better to be covered than lose your butt. Also if its real bad it is OK to say no (took me several years to learn that, hated to turn anything down). And it would not be a 100 bucks to do it either (unless you live in Blackshear)
