    Having a hard time figuring out how much to charge for this. A couple times i have always under bid jobs. Theyre wanting the hollies trimmed, rose bushes pruned a bit, weeds pulled and crepe myrtles cleaned out.
    So any advice would be helpful

    How many hours do you think it would take you? A day? 2? 3? Is it just you? Helper?

    Roses are time consuming if you do them right, knock outs? In your mind you can visualize cutting the shrubs, figure how much time per section, add cleanup now do the next section, add them up you have a questimate of time. Add a little more for hick-ups, add any other work related things, dumping, PROFIT, tools.... You can come up with a fairly good questimate FOR YOU.

    Your hourly rate times how ever long you think it will take = your price. That simple.
