    I been a little gardening for a while now but recently i've gotten a lot more involved as I really enjoy it. I've replaces all my tools ($$$$) to more professional range from Mountfield, Hayter, Kawasaki, Tanaka, and the most reason a Billy Goat KD612...

    1: Hedge trimming: How much should I charge... Do I charge per hour or for the job? Recently, i been charging per hour and don't know if i should change this.. Wot u think? Don't 4get, i'm using all my own tools etc....

    I would be greatful for a breakdown in prices ie:

    General gardening maintenance
    Hedge cutting
    Leaf fall clean-up
    Drive / patio cleaning
    Gardening clearance and so on

    Oh, I am fully insurance as well.

    People don't realize, but u really get wot u pay for!

    Don't worry if u give my ur currency price.... I can always work it out.

    you have to do a business plan, figure out your true expensies, and add a profit margin, thats what you charge....
