Thanks Cowboys...that really helps me frame things a lot clearer. And palm trees are really easy to actually get up...they're kind of a ball root/bulb. You'd be amazed how sinewy and string they are when put a chainsaw to them though.
So basically I should charge double what it cost for the mulch, soil, shrubs and trees, + $500? Should I itemize the costs or should I just do a "total cost"?
