i did a small perennial garden for 500 bucks, so with those plants i would easily guess at about 800 easy, not including the fence if that is part of the plan.

it is a nice design, i cant tell if the spacing is correct, but seems so

for labor and supply that seems way to cheap...for this flower bed installed
29'x4' with all plants and labor $800?? how long have you been in the business? I appreciate your input but I would easily tack on another $2000

Sorry but that house doesn't look like a place that can be fixed up with a splash of a few plants.....no irrigtion either right? That bed looks real nice on paper but what will it look like next spring.

The house is not in question... But you are 100% right it is not located in the best of areas, The landscape in the design is all I would be responsible for along with the fence...Owner does not want sprinkler system or drip irrg. installed, would rather use a drip hose i guess...

If you were to put a price tag on the complete job what would it be?

i meant another 800 bucks on top of the 500, oops my bad

it was an off the hip guess anyhow, i dont do a ton of landscaping to do it in my head, i need to do some real figuring for that kind of thing

You can put a ribbon and a bow on a turd, but it's still a turd. :laugh:
