    Hey guys I did very light snow removal last year and am looking to do it again this year. Just wondering what I should charge by the hour. Also, am looking into trimming bushes just wondering how and what to charge for them as well!

    It really depends on what type of snow removal you do! You should charge at least 50-60 dollars on parking lots. Or what i do is charge by the amount of snow. It's easy! And bushes do 35 dollars an hour. Or by bush!

    If your fully insured you should be getting a couple hundred dollars(atleast) per hour.You can work as a subcontractor for a larger company and get $100 bucks per hour easy if you have a truck with a plow.
