    Depends completely on access to area, size of bush or plant and species of bush or plant. Some have shallow roots that are easy to get out others are damn near impossible to get out.

    Depends on how much time you think it will take you, basically put a charge on hourly rate, and then removal (disposal) usally around 100.00 to 150.00 for disposal. So if your hourly rate is something like 50 an hour, and you est. that it will take you 3 hours to remove and replant, you charge 150.00 for removal an install + 150.00 for disposal. so 300.00 for the complete job. Just an example....
