    Usually riding a mower all day. I have a customer that wants me to remove 6 to 7 Box shrubs that are about 3 feet tall, which I will mostlikely have to dig out by shovel. Then she wants me to replace them with some 5 gallon Dwarf Yaupon hollies or another smallier type holly. The beds are already mulched and ready to go, but the box shrubs are dying. I was thinking $25 to $30 to remove and $15 to $20 to plant, but I am not real sure and I don't want to sell myself short with the removal.

    Thanks for any help.

    No, it is in her front yard and it has been raining. It won't be hard to remove them. I just came from her house and she also now wants me to widen her beds about a foot out, from 4 feet wide beds to 5 feet wide, which she 87 feet of beds, that run alond the front of their house and transplant another box shrub from the backyard to the front. They are elderly people and have been customers of mine for 3 years, so I want to treat them right.
