Just for trimming and cleanup.. Probably 4hrs worth of labor.. $240 + drivetime + $50 haul charge for clippings if they cannot be left on site.

slackers perhaps. But I thought the idea was to answer what we would charge. I don't do any trimming for $40. 30 minutes at $80 per hour.

Why don't you apply some of your expertise to the lawn. :p
i'm tellin ya. this customer, nice guy, real nice guy and generous with the greenbacks, he cuts the front lawn, we cut the back, it's about the same size. he don't water, cuts it down to 1.5" every week, fertilizes 3x in spring and summer, and every year, late summer, gets hit with a fungus that wipes the lawn out. he won't let me touch the front, he'd rather me thatch/aerate/seed, every single fall.

If you did all those shrubs in 27 minutes by yourself, they didn't need trimming.
