It all depends. You have to analyz (its spelled wrong), the situation. I only have 2 that pay per cut because its not worthit. They only want you when you are the busiest anyway. But as far as a one time cut, this week (holiday week) you can and will get more than you would have last week.

Hey gys one of my customers wants me to remove her hedges. It it about 9-10 ft long 3 1/2-4 ft tall and 2 ft deep. How should I charge? By the hour or just a flat rate? I am really stumped here. This will be the first time I have done any removal of shrubs. Thanks for the input.

Personally I charge by the job on work like that. You need to figure out how long it will take and then add a couple of hours because you probably under-estimated and get out the chainsaw and axe.

The way I like to pull shrubs is to cut them off at the base with the chainsaw and then dig out what I can and cut out the roots with an axe. I also always add the price of renting a tiller and tilling into the job. It will help to get alot of the root material out.

Good Luck and happy bidding.

Hedges

Is the customer replanting or just covering with sod? If your covering there is no need to till. I have an old Poulan saw i use just for this job so i dont care if it gets in the dirt. I got 200.00 for a similar job with removal of most of the roots.Took just under 3 hours.

200.00 was about what i was coming up with. It was more like 260.00 with a 20.00 dump fee. she wants to put flower beds in the area but not right away. Also I think she wants those decorative curbs, but I don't due that. Maybe I will get to do the flower beds for her. anyways thanks for all of your help.
