I am still hung up on my pricing for installing flats. Do you'll do it by the flat? x amount per, or hourly. I don't like hourly on these because I can really get them in, but it is labor intensive popping in 540 little plants. Thanks for your suggestions..

I say $30 to $35 per flat installed. Not including clean-up. Oooh, I guess I also need to know how much you are paying per flat. I pay $7.95 for 32 cup flats, but I buy in bulk.

$35/flat w/mulch. I use two cordless drills with auger bits to put mine in. Really is a time saver.

What in the heck are you planting in:confused: ? I use garden soil, miracle grow to be exact, and its just a easy move of the soil, and its done.

When I plant just a few flats I use that method, but anything over 10 flats in one area I use the bit from Lowes and don't add any soil. One of my properties takes 100 flats and that would be a lot of soil, one guy drills the holes and the other plants, just as simple as your method, but with less materials eating into the profit.
