    How much do you think I should charge to trim all the bushes infront of the front porch, trim the bushes to the left side of the house, and mulch with black dye. Probably less than one yard of mulch. Any responses would help me out...I just want to be fair, not too high, not too low. Thanks again...

    50-60 for hedge trimming and 75 for 1 yard of mulch. this shouldn't take you more than 1.5 hours.
    total $115.00

    130 bucks plus tax. I'd charge 70 for the mulch installed and 60 to trim the bushes and dispose of the debris.

    Are the regular customer, one time customer, or first time potential regular customer???? Regular customer in good standing I'd go with the 115, one time customer no chance of regular work do a little edging to make it real nice looking go 150, potential regular 125 and do the edging too.
