Do you guys think charging $5 to $10 per a bush to cut down ornamental grass is to much?
I don't know about price but I learned a valuable ornamental grass lesson today. tie that crap up before you cut it
Seems quite a lot to me. Then again I don't charge per bush.
Gardens, how much do you charge? If i charged 5 per a bush and theirs 35 a bush, that comes out to 175. Thats with cleaning up the yard after random parts of the ornamental grass falls out of the bundal and onto the yard. Also that includes disposal. I think thats a steal. It took me 4 hours with 15 bushs. I dont even want to know how long with 35.
I have also learned the hard way to lol
Yes you need to tie it up, thats the best way to get a even cut on them... We use hedge trimmers to cut them.
We charge by the hour for this type of stuff
Ron, how much do u charge per hour?
WE shoot between 35-45 Hour depending on what were doing and a few other things
And wear long sleeves doing it....
4 hour for 15 ornamental grasses is way too long. Put a bunjee or twine around them and whack em with a hedge trimmer. Throw the clippings on a tarp and move on to the next one. Should only be 2-3 minutes per plant including the time to load them in the truck.
