    what would be a good price for trimming a 5 feet wide 4 feet tall and 80 feet long hedge it is also severley overgrown to the point the county is warning the homeowner.

    Well depending on the place we price things one of two ways

    1.) Set a hourly price for your services and charge accordingly. Are rate is 55\hr and we have a one hour minimum no matter how small plus a 25 dollar disposal fee on top of that for haul off. Are shop is on acreage and we can dump in our compost so we are just making up for the extra time disposing.

    2.) Charge X amount for each bush seperately and add it up and that is your bid. The going rate in Kansas City is 3.50 to 5.00 which we have used in some instances. Most of the time we do by the hout and very rarely are we wrong. Also I like prunning and I am pretty fast at it.
