Shrub removal

I deal mostly with mowing and mulching but I was just asked for a price to remove a bunch of shrubs in a center island in a neighborhood. What would you guys charge to do this? Would you charge by the bush removed,or by the hour? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Scott

shrub removal

More information: are they coming out by the roots or being chainsawed out and the stumps Round-upped? Replanting? Are there any potentially-involved underground services (if they're being dug or pulled out)? New mulch?

They would be completely coming out. They are not big shrubs, fairly small. I can dig out with a shovel. No power lines to worry about. Will be doing before I do the mulch, and will be replanting flowers in the open areas. Mulch and flower installation are seperate fees from the removal work and those prices are already set. I just need help with the removal fee. Thanks.

Can you post a pic by chance? What variety of shrubs are they? About how many bushes are there, size of the planter if they are close together? I would think your best bet would to be do it by the job and get it done if it looks easy rather than do a fast job at an hourly rate. Are you figuring in disposal cost or can it be curbside pick up there?

I will be charging them a disposal fee which I already have figured out. There are probably 40 or 50 shrubs. They only stand about 2-2 1/2' tall, so the balls on them aren't very big. I've already pulled 1 out and it was next to nothing to do. Took less than 5 minutes to remove.

Somewhere around 210-300 would probably be fair. Depends on what going rate is there.
