    I've got a client with 15 of these ornamental grasses to remove. What's a thought on the removal price for each? They are about 5ft in diameter on averag . Thanks!

    A shovel and a few bottles of water.

    As for price. I would make it a call it 1 days labor and a dump fee.

    Ratchet strap at the base and pull them out with a mower or truck. $20 a pop plus disposal

    What kind of equipment do you have to use? It will take while by hand in sure. Do you knownof anyone who wants to split them sell them off? Just an after thought. Definately alot of work there would roughly say 200 to 300 or so. Not sure on your market rate but figured 20min each by hourly rate. If you have something to pull them out with chain an loader wont takw near that long.

    A messy job also they have a big base May take longer then you think. I would say $500.00 to remove clean and haul away.

    I have a hard time seeing someone paying $500 to remove those. Make sure you bundle them up and it won’t be messy

    Those things are huge. $900 plus haul/dump fee. Its going to be at least two trips in a one-ton.
