Could someone give me a general price to charge a customer for the LampPost pictured..? I haven't done one in a while and most of my bussiness is Landscaping...?

It's tough to say. Are you using that material pictured? If so what is it. If not there is a HUGE variation in pricing between diffrent manufacturers on pillar block. There is a recent post that you might find useful, I forget the title, but you'll understand better if you can find it.

Well. let's go with the Material in the picture. THe customer wants it made out of the same material that his pavers are done with which was put down this Spring....It is Henry material.....

I am asumeing labor only and the material is already on site and the electrician has already installed the wire and lamp has been purchased and permit is in hand.

625.00 labor only

Sans electrician I would charge $1,200.00 incuding materials.

Building a pillar out of pavers? Seems odd. Won't the edges look weird,

Those are not pavers, they are 3" Coventry wall.

OK, it's Springtime and i want to build this type of structure for a lamp post. Someone told me that EP Henry has this in a "Kit" that you can buy..

Can anyone confirm...?

I'd say all of the larger manufacturers make something like that, ask for a pillar kit. One thing, a piece of advice if you will. Be careful with your base, especially if you are going tall. We had ones we built 5 ft tall for a gate that awlays seemed to settle, we built at a very dry time of year and used 12 inches of base compacted correctly. In the spring the following year we found and underground dtrean running in the area of the pillars, needless to say it turned the whole area into soup and we were stuck scratching our heads.

cement base? why waste the time and money. Thats two trips to the property this should be done pretty quick less than a full day for sure.

Why do you need an electrician? You can do it in Low Voltage
