Its seem that the going rate to purchase one "Birds Nest Spruce" is anywhere from $25-$35 around here. What would you guys charge to install it?

Also, the going rate for a day lilly is aroung $5-$10. what would you charge to install it?

Thanks again:)

Depends a lot on the difficulty of the installation: if you have to hike a quarter mile uphill to plant the stuff you need to charge more. Remember that birds' nest spruces are not fast growers, but will become 3'-4' across and up to 3' tall ultimately. Either bite the bullet and get larger ones, or plant smaller ones and be prepared to remove half of 'em in 5 years. When bidding jobs, I go with 2.5-3.5 x the cost of the plant.
