You're asking too general of a question without given any details.

I try estimate how long it will take to accomplish. I have a set hourly rate that I keep myself to. Do research and try to get the feel for what the market price per hour is in your area. Beleive it or not its not that hard to find out how much a certain contractor gets for a certain yard. Once you have one yard price in hand you can figure how long it takes them and go from there to figure out what they charge. Im not saying use this info to lowball your competition, im saying use this to get the going rate for your services. After you get a few accounts you will know how to price accordingly.
Hourly - determine your fixed and variable expenses and know what you need to do per hour to cover these expenses
