depending on the size of the job either by the hour or 4 dollars per small shrub or 6 dollars per medium shrub

How long would it take to trim them? Got any pictures of them to show us?

HI
We figure on $60 per man hour for shrub trimming.
I have an excel document spreadsheet that calculates shrub trimming based on various sizes of shrubs, adds a certain amount for setup and cleanup and allows you to change your hourl rate, etc.

It's a freebie when you order my program, "How to start a lawn care business a whole NEW way!" which has many MORE estimators and calculators, but I'm putting the aforementioned excel document and a couple of PDFs I include at www.lawnguru.net/freebies
