    What I do is charge by the hour. Deside what you want to get paid per hour, check the job and figure out how long it will take. If you want $50 an hour and it take an hour.......45 mins=37.5 But set a minimum if you get a small lawn that take 15 min then dont charge 12.5. Around here the average price for trimming shrubs or bushes is $75 an hour. Plantings is a good money maker, charge them your hourly rate plus the markup on plantings. Good Luck Brett.
