    The way i do it is just by how long i think it will take me. I accomodate for bushes that i will need a ladder for. Usually for two regular size bushes about 4 feet wide i would charge $40

    I usually charge by the bush, it will atleast give you a better estimate than trying to charge without. If nothing else, get your figure you want to charge for each bush and their different sizes, add them up and give the customer your price. That usually works here, if they ask you to explain you can say the large bushes are X and the smaller bushes are Y, etc. Hope this helps
