I understand what you are saying. You are looking for ways to lower fixed costs and or how to adjust for higher costs incured. You are also saying you have a good understanding of how long each type of material takes to install and are not really questioning your install times. My problem has been jobs with hardscape/ softscape combined. Example: when I do a small stone wall along with softscape my profitability is good. However; after review i have noticed that when i was just doing the natural stone wall without plants by profiability was not there. In other words the higher margin i made on the plants was covering up my under priced wall. I was leaving money on the table from the natural stone wall. It gets to be tricky when i have 2-3 crews going at the same time.
