    I have a question...I need guidance...

    Any idea as to what something like this should cost to reshape/trim/prune/etc. It contains about 20 -30 plants and trees which haven't been tended in probably 3 - 5 years.

    I will add addt'l pics.

    I estimated about 5 hours work. But I haven't worked on anything like this as of yet.

    Plenty to do for one person

    Real tough for us to see what needs to be done with jsut pics from across the street though.

    Certainly prune the bulk, and thin out the shrubs and contain the ground cover. If you have left over time, consider dumping some mulch... Just don't thin it too much as it's a good noise, view barrier to the street....

    I'd start on the ground and work up to the trees.
