Trimming costs

How much do i charge for trimming bushes? 10-12 years over grown, basically cutting these bushes in half. Many forsythia with some English boxwoods. I already explained to the client that i am not resposible if these bushes die. How much to trim the bushes?

For this type of a Job I would charge on a time bases as well as a fee for the removal of the debries. Charge and hourly rate, any reasonable rate in your area for landscape type work and then ajust it to what you think it is worth. Every on and there brother is going to charge a different rate. As long as you think it is reasonable and you are not killing yourself on the price IE to low then it should be good. Quality is the key, do a good job and get paid for what it is worth. but in our area I would say 45-55 per hour pluse a removal fee.
