I have a customer who would like me to plant 5 - 5ft arborvitaes for her. How much should I mark up the materials and what should I charge to install them ? Thanks

When pricing planting I triple the price. That includes a 1 year warrenty on the plant with exemptions on acts of GOD and owner neglect.

Charge retail for the plants(hopefully yur getting a contractors price) plusextra for compost or peatmoss or whatever you back fill with, plus a few hours labor. 1 guy could prolly do it in an hour to an hour and half as long as the soil is fair and not rocky.

We double the price plus labor, includes one year guarantee. Client is charged labor for any replacements.
