Even though the job is small I would charge $100 to show up and then maybe $30 to plant six. +materials. I figure $100 extra into any quote I give to cover the expense of getting men and equipment there. $150 if we have to bring the skid steer or mini.

Then why would you want to be dirt cheap on this?

For residential work we always mark plants up at least 100%. We have a TX Nursery Certificate and a TX Sales Tax Certificate like any professional should. For a 1G (or 6") I budget $3 for labor. In a finished bed you can plant a 1G in 30 seconds. If your having to go get the plants that's got to be factored in. It's a waste of time to have to get only a handful of plants but for maintenance accounts sometimes you have to do the little things to keep people happy.
