GOT A CALL TO TRIM 25 FT HEDGE BUSHES, 30 FT MONKEY GRASS, 6 CRAPE MYRTLES, AND PULL UP BUSHES THE CUSTOMER DOES NOT WANT. ALSO HE WANTS 7 YARDS OF RED MULCH SPREAD IN HIS FLOWER BEDS AFTER ALL THAT. I HAVE BEEN FIGURING ON A PRICE OF AROUND 575.00. IS THIS PRICE TOO HIGH? I KNOW WITHOUT LOOKING ITS HARD TO SAY, BUT HOW CLOSE AM I WITH THIS?

Too high? Hell no. I'd charge $525 just for the mulch part of the job.

How long is the hedge, how big are the trees(Crapes)??? How big/type/number are the shrubs to be removed, stumps too??? Do you have to fill in the holes??? Do the beds need edging/weeding first???

I'm figuring 4 to 5 hours by myself. The crape myrtles are 10 ft. he wants them cut back to 5 ft. 8 shrubs to be cut to the ground, said they would come back.Some cedar looking hedge 4 ft. high and 20 ft long trimmed and squares up. No weeding just trimiming monkey grass to the ground also. then spreading 7 to 8 yards of mulch all by myself.
