Shrub Trimming Estimates

#1) In my monthly quotes I'm allowing up 20' linear ft. trimming as part of the price. I'm saying $1 per foot after that. So say a customer has 100 ft of shrubs. Is 80 ft x $1 twice a year ($160) too low a bid? Shrubs are boxwood, holly, etc. They are in very good shape now so it seems easy upkeep.
#2) Customer as an evergreen hedge 100' that is shared w/a neighbor. Every year they cut to shoulder height. Now they want to maintain it, probably trimming 2-3 times a year. More total hours for sure, so what's a ballpark figure per foot? Hedge is about 8' now, so I guess we're say take 3 ft. off......

Hi khutch,

Here are two posts that deal with shrub trimming pricing. Maybe they will help until others post.
