    The price will vary greatly depending on the area that you are in In my area the mow and trim would be about $65 not bagged add $25 to bag as far as trimming 300' hedge that will be best to bill by the hour in my opinion at least the first time to get an idea of actual time and debris,Can you leave the trimmings or take them with you 300' will be quite alot of trimmings.
    If they want a number upfront go high like $400 but offer them $45 per man hr plus haul away and tell them actually it will probally be less than the hard figure that you gave them but you dont want to loose money thats why you gave a high number.

    for the monthly fee she wants for it all, would $317 per month for it sound 2 high for the yr?
    $ of 42 cuts per yr divided by 12= $ per month
    hedge triming $ divided by 12= $ per month
