    I was wonting to get some help on price estimating and projected cost of some jobs; trimming of trees and palm trees, yard debre removal and tree debre.
    Also I’m kind of getting my feat wet with landscaping (I am taking about small job) like just small beds and mulch jobs (not a lot of plants).

    So for trimming of trees and palms that do not require a latter with a power saw I was thinking of 75$ a palm/tree.
    And for those that require a latter (10/20 feet in the air) I was thinking of 100,125$ a tree.

    For debre and tree debre I was thinking 100$ per truckload with out a trailer, and 150$ with trailer.

    As for the landscaping end of things I’m just going by the hour but I have wholesale nursery’s I am set up with, I would like to get a form and way of estimating and pricing out my landscaping job which I am likening more then “just cutting grass”.

    Thank you for your pricing help pro’s

    Throwing only=$65/yd
    Throwing and edging=$75/yrd
    Price includes the mulch
