    What is the average price you bill out for a spring clean up for 1/2-3/4 acre mid/high income homes that want leaves removed (nothing excessive), deadheading, light shrub trimming, maybe some edging, etc?

    I know every job is different, I just want to know if I am getting in the ballpark here.

    Thanks

    Reason I ask is I have quoted out several spring clean ups and haven't gotten one back yet. I'm trying to figure out if I am quoting too high...

    And if its easier than I thought or I work harder/faster, I make a lot more.......

    And when a customer sees that I am going to bill them $45/hr per person they freak out..........
