I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but I'm in a jam and need some feedback. How much would you charge, per shrub, to pull out overgrown and/or dead shrubs that are planted in rock beds (1" river rock) and then replant new ones? We need to gaurentee these shrubs for 1 year. I live in Minnesota. Any feedback is appreciated.

The ones were pulling are junipers and were putting in shrubs (don't know the name), but they are about 2 feet high by 1.5 foot radius.

its kind of hard to price something if we don't know what it is. also the normal method of sizing plants is either the container size or the caliper of the trunk on B&B

How many,what size are the ones your removing and putting in?Got Pics?Of the area and the shrubs you are to remove?You cant just yank old ones out and stick new ones right in ..you will need to bring in soil and planting mix for the new ones.The old ones will leave alot of empty soil space.

if you have a warranty on your plants buy them at Wal-mart they will take back anything :)
