    Yep bid it and see how you end up. After you do the work you'll learn whether you priced it too high or low you learn a valuable lesson either way. dont underestimate

    Somewhat unrelated, but the best advice on trimming I ever got from this site was to bring a large old bedspread and move it around bush to bush if you are doing this on new (newer) mulch. It makes the cleanup SO much easier and faster

    Speaking of cleanup - that's the part that always gets me. It's easy to figure out how long it will take to zip off a row of hedges, but you have to factor in the worst part - cleanup.

    Also don't forget to factor in disposal - dump fees plus TIME and fuel to get there - if needed.
