What do you guys charge per cubic yard to install wash rock?
As far as installing shrubs and trees do you charge per hour, per plant or both? What is your mark up on material? I usually add 15%.

Do you charge for doing edge work on sidewalks and driveways. I always trim the edge work with my weed wacker at a nice 45 degree angle, but it doesn't do the job like an edger can do.

I have posted a few other times asking about pricing. Now that I am doing more landscape type work instead of just mowing, I want to make sure I am charging a fair price to the customer and to myself for a reasonable profit. Is a labor rate of $50/hour reasonable.
