    While I was doing another clients house, a guy walked up t me and asked me if I could give him an estimate tomorrow. Im thinking he wants everything done (tree trimming, edging, mulch, the hole 9 yards. Here are some pictures of what he has.

    I was thinking about 6-8 yards of much ($33 a yard) I would have to get it delivered or get a trailer in time. SO I was thinking $70 buck to edge, weed, and lay mulch (75 because of the huge amount of weeds)

    To trim the bushes I was thinking $30 an hour.

    I would need help, so I need to plan accordingly (too still make a profit)

    Bottom line $690 for mulch delivered, weeding, laying it down, edging. With the tree and bush trimming im guessing that would take a good 3 or 4 hours (about 100 bucks lets say)

    Is $800+ a fair estimate

    Couldn't figure out how to upload an image so heres my site which I put the images on, just click the link and there right there.

    From the pictures, assuming you're not taking much if anything off the top of the hedges, I figured $850 with haul away. But that doesn't include the fact you need to find a trailer for the day. That's what I figure I could get around here, that may even be a little cheap and i'd round it up to $1000 since I don't like weeding, or hire the neighbor kid to weed while I complete the other work.
