Thanks! Yeah it helps to have the right tools haha. Every year we get more and more people who want clearing and tear outs of large or dense sections of their property

How do you charge for clean outs like that? I haven't mastered estimating things like that so i always end up charging by the hour, which usually means less potential for extra profit? Any tips you have would be appreciated.

It is much easier for me to estimate things like mulch because i have it down, and it always goes the same way, i am afraid of surprises on clean outs etc

Thanks

I price them out instead of hourly. I generally figure it will take a certain number of hours then add a fudge factor. Just be sure to walk the property well and know what you can do with the gear you have at your disposal
