maintenance pricing help

Hey guys, I need help on pricing, I have a new customer in the New Albany neighborhood and don't know what a reasonable price would be. They need to have their shrubs cleaned up one or two times a month. How much would one charge for this service (there are shrubs and trees all around the house and the perimeter of the property). In addition to the trimming, they need the clippings cleaned up(this is the reason why the last guy is no longer doing this job). I would estimate two or three hours on site or this job each time. Thanks for you input...

Finally got some rain today!!! We had just over an inch so far but it is still looking like we could get some more yet today. I hope everyone else got some rain that needed it! Hopefully I can get back mowing again next week

two to three hours on site with at least an hour of drive time to get there and back. Your price will depend on your costs, I would not got any lower than 40 per man hour. That is me though. Waht is your tjme worth? Provide quality worK? Great service and show up when you tell them? That all figures in. Good luck.

I hate to say this we got some rain today too with more to come. Only calling for a total of 1/2 to 1 inch of rain. IMO that is not going to do squat. Ground is way to dry. We need a steady rain all night and all day to do some good.

We have been getting showers everyday for the last few days. Late night and evenings. Had a good soaking today around 6:00. It was in the middle of finishing a yard of course. Oh well we need it. Kept mowing for two more. That last install put us a day behind.
