    Too much variation in hedgework to charge by the foot.
    Stick with an estimate based on time X rate + disposal.

    How in the hell do you charge by the foot? What happens when you come across a 8 or 10 foot high privacy hedge that is 6 feet or more wide?

    I charge by the shrub sometimes, maybe $5-$7 a shrub for your basic shrub, larger shrubs = more money or I bill it hourly.

    i just look at teh bushes and picture me working on them, how long it will take, debrit and resharpening the blades, all comes into the estimate, most of the time im around $75-150
