    Too general, need more stuff:

    - All in a row or independent?
    - Type of shrub would help.
    - How much debris expected (ok to guess for this, a little, a lot).
    - dispose of debris onsite or haul away?

    ok, well do you charge by each bush or by the hour, or how long it takes you to do the whole job?...or what...for example, you do a business with 50 shrubs how much do you charge, or say you do a residential home with 15-20 bushes how much do you charge
    thanks

    sorry about that, most of them are all in a row, and then a few indies, and then i will have to haul of the debris when finished, and most are boxwoods and a few wiegelas and also a think a few spyreas (SP), and the clipping will be about medium
