What would be an average labor cost for this job. This is my first paver job. The gray areas are where the pavers are to go to widen their driveway. If the image doesn't show here are the dimensions. 4.5 x 36.5 ft (164 sf) on the left and the right side is 4.5x29 (131 sf). I am guessing $3000 for labor, at $10 per sf. and whatever material costs will be multiplied by 15%. I will have to hire someone to excavate the area, too large and time consuming to do by hand. Should I add this fee on or subtract it from the labor cost since I won't be doing any of the major digging?
