I just quoted a guy $250 for a shrub trimming, weeding, mulching job. I'm expecting it to take me about 5-6 hours. He has about 20-30 shrubs, nothing too big; mostly 3ft-5ft tall. But many are very messy looking and uneven from irregular growth. These guys I'm hoping will be happy if I just get them evened out and looking good. But how much should I take off? I know enough to make them look descent, but should I trim off much past the basic shape of the bush and just take the uneven foliage off or should I trim another inch or 2 off each ( which could double my time ) He said he only wanted a light trim and I'm sure anything would be an improvement. But any tips u vets may have would be appreciated.
