How would ya'll price this? The customer is really laid back and doesn't care about appearance of the shrubs. I charge $35 per hour and I am working solo. I have all the equipment that I need. I was thinking 3 hours of work...

What do think?

3hrs... Are you trimming with hand clippers? If you are already there mowing $30 shouldn't take more than 10 min to trim and clean up with regular hedge trimmers.

Can not tell how much work is there. Remember cleanup part always takes longer then the trimming part.

If you think there is three hours of work then that job should go for $180.

I don't already mow there, maybe it is more like 1:30 but I don't know. The trimmers are electric...

The bushes aren't really overgrown. Decent bit of work but not huge.
