Somewhat unrelated, but the best advice on trimming I ever got from this site was to bring a large old bedspread and move it around bush to bush if you are doing this on new (newer) mulch. It makes the cleanup SO much easier and faster

Speaking of cleanup - that's the part that always gets me. It's easy to figure out how long it will take to zip off a row of hedges, but you have to factor in the worst part - cleanup.

Also don't forget to factor in disposal - dump fees plus TIME and fuel to get there - if needed.
