    ... on the person, the equipment, and the shrubbery. How fast are you? Is your equipment going to be able to keep up with you? How tall are the shrubs? Are they easy to get to? How much waste will you have in trimmings? Can it be 'swept under the rug,' so to speak? Your light trim may not be the same as mine :D . There have been some good posts on trimming shrubs before, here's a good one to read over. Try the search function if you don't see what you're looking for in here. Luck!

    You gonna trim (shear) or prune (selective by hand)? No different than any thing else of comparable size for the same type of work.
