    How many times a year should I figure on trimming bushes down here in Florida? Everyone seems to want monthly pricing so, I'm trying to get my figures right. Not that it will make much difference. I'm getting outbid all over the place. I'm trying to get $25 for 1/4 acre & $35 for 1/2 witch is low to begin with and people are coming in for $5 to $10 less. I may be out of business before I even get rolling. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    it all depends on the type of shrub. some need trimmed every other month, while others can go for 6 months. its just how the client wants their property to look.

    In our market you have to throw in bush trimming free in this environment and the price is usually $75/month for weekly cuts.
