I got to do my first bid for a re-mulch job and remove 4 small bushes.
This is what i came up with $150 to clean out old mulch and remove 4 bushes
and $450 for 6 yards mulch installed. What do you guys think of those prices? What do you charge for trimming hedges and bushes?

over here in California i get 1 yard of nice chip mulch for $45 a yard and thats already at a bulk price with discount plus the delivery which is $75 so i would spend about $270 just to purchase the mulch so with delivery and mulch bought i would spend $345 i would make $100 for that one job which is way under cutting my profit. I would at least charge $750 in So Cal.

good luck

How long would the hedge trimming take do you think?

Take some pics of the job.

Keep us posted.
