Do you have labor help or are you doing this by yourself?

How tall are the Hedges that you need to take down to 3' ? (How much material are you required to remove)

NOTE: Removing to much at one time will cause stunted hedges or kill them. Then you have to replace them and you don't want that to happen.

Even if you price a hourly wage you still have to give estimate of how much time it will take to do it.

ON YOU OWN;
I would Price out the Top Soil cost $xxx amount + time to grade it out and seed of what ever needs to be done from there with that area.
Trimming hedges 50' x 2.85 = 1.5 for trimming and balance for clean up clippings.
Pruning the oaks didn't look to be to bad so I would add 2 hours for this @ your rate.
Add a refuse removal fee of 3 times the dumping charges at your local dump.

There you have it if you do this on your own.

WITH HELP;
Same as above but you will complete it faster and make it easier for you and still charge the same or may be add $ 100 for casual labor for the day.


Good Luck
Tim
