    I posted earlier on how to cut back the pampas grass, but now i've cut it back and i'm not really sure how much to charge...it took me right at an hour to cut them all down i think their was 12 of them and then about 30 min to pic the stuff up throw it in a wheel barrow and dump it, i don't have this property on a contract, so its not something i just include in the price, so how much should i charge?

    We charge 25.00 to come out and $ 5.00 for each plant these are about 3ft across max. Lay sheets or tarps before Ya cut and cleanup is quick. So my price 85.00

    If it's a regular customer on my route, I charge my normal labor fee of 35.00 per hour. If I can bag and leave at the curb, I don't charge a haul and dump fee. So this job would cost a regular client 35.00 x 1.5 hrs = 52.50.
    Someone who is not a regular, I would charge 25.00 to show up, + 52.50, or 77.50.
    Hope this helps.
