    What type of hedge is it and how much is to be trimmed off? A picture would be nice if possible.

    as was said "hourly"

    or in what time frame do you think you can get it done? Bear in mind that Yews take a while to trim and have them look real nice.
    But do you think you can do it in half a day? with cleaning up? If you can then why not charge for what an average half day would be for you.

    If you're looking for price. In the area of $400 +

    careful on this one. as was said, if they are yews, i bit time consuming for that tight manacured look. if they are forsythia, much easier, but more disposal, if u cant identify the hedge, just make sure u can get through it with a hedge trimmer, if the branches are thick you will be loping, and you are in for a long day.
