How do you guys price trimming shrubs?
I did a search for you and found this thread. It should be helpful.
I tend to agree with the philosophy of looking over how long it has taken you in the past. Try to come up with a time schedule so that you can eyeball future accounts and then determine if it is something you can take on or need to use sub-contracting for.
These figures also include the clean-up for each and found for us it tends to average itself out:
15 minutes for small specimens
25 minutes for medium specimens
40 minutes for large specimens
My figures are a little higher than the others in the thread because I figured an additional 75% employee factor in determineing my figures.
The numbers that I used as a base were from a friend who does alot of commercial trimming. He figures his trimming this way:
small= 5 minutes ... medium= 15 minutes ... large= 25 minutes
Good Luck this season!
