Trimming bushes and brush is definitely an extra. I run into homes quite often where I have to cut back bushes in order to get to the siding of the home.
By the same token, a higher grade or paint finish might be needed in areas prone to constant wear and tear and high traffic areas. A painter is likely to choose a high-grade paint for a doorway, for example, which will be in constant contact with passersby, pets, toddlers, kids and other forces that wear on the paint finish.

And consider providing breakfast (coffee and doughnuts) or a pizza lunch for the crew.”
