    I am looking for some help in estimating the trimming of some shrubs. The length is 30'X90'. It would be just a one man job. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Those things are so over grown i would rip them out but to trim them up i would bid around 100 but maybe more maybe less depending on how they look in person

    Thirty feet by ninety feet of hedges..........100.00????
    How low are you anticipating on cutting these shrubs?
    What about the hauloff you will need to do?
    Do you realize the size of the center limb matter?

    I wouldn't touch that row of hedges and haul off for less than 500.00!!

    Back of the bus please!!!

    If hes just trimming them up to look neat then its easy anough for 100-150. But if he if cutting it down in size and cutting it back then im there with your quote

    Just trimming around the edges will only promote vertical growth and still look unkept.
    I wouldnt estimate it for less than 2 bills.

    TruVine,
    You got us to upsell or bid this job for you....................did you get the work??
    A one person job as this will be time consuming unless you only trim off the edges.
