    A restaurant wants about 25 small bushes pulled out and 8 new small and low maintenance bushes put in. Not sure where i should be with the bid. $20 a bush to pull out and get rid of to much? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

    The labor charge sounds fair...but would depend on the size of the shrubs. be sure to add some for repair of the lawn from tire tracks. Also, your disposal costs. You might have a few trips to the landfill if you have a smaller trailer to haul them away in. Roll-off containers are nice to dump them in but expensive.

    I pulled all of the bushes out already. Took about 10min each bush with a shovel and i have a place where i can dump small bushes for free, so no cost there. Was only soppsed to pull out 3 bushes. End up pulling 25 and they want 8 new planted with a price for the total job before finishing. Thats kinda where i need the help.
