    Long and Foster are asking me for an estimate to hedge their roadfront bushes... I usually only do residental work. so how do you guys go about giving an estimate for this type of commerical work?

    I think hedge trimming could be the hard estimate to do. I find that I bid for at least an extra 15 min a hedge. You just never know what youÂ’re going to get. When I first started doing estimate this year I got burned on the hedge part of the bids. I would just make sure you add some extra for the what ever.
