Juniper Trees x2

I have two Juniper Trees to wrap. Customer wants LED mini's. Will this look good or should I do c7's on these?


Also, what would everyone charge to do these two Juiper trees to the left and right of the archway?


See attached image.

Those look to be about 24 feet tall and about 4-6 feet wide. we would use mini lights spaced 6 inches apart and probably charge about 350 each the first year and 200 each the 2nd year.

It will look awesome...BUT it will be a huge pain in the butt to get it done and very time consuming. Here's a house where we do the blue LED minis on the Junipers. That pic was taken 2 years ago - last year the trees had grown - not to 24 feet though - and we used about 600 minis if not more on each juniper. We definitely underbid this the first year. For the trees in your pic I would charge at least $500/each the first year if using LED minis and about $200/each 2nd year.

I would be almost double Dave's price, on a rental. But I swear our cost of everything is double here.
Really depends how many lights you put in.

Britelights,
I didn't know that was your client, nice....
I would have figured the trees the OP showed to go for the 6-700 range, does your 2nd year price of 200 include takedown and storage? Just seems low.

Thanks - it's one of our favorite houses we do. Our 2nd year price includes takedown and storage yes -- but that's just the price for those 3 trees. We do alot for this customer...since that pic we added a 2nd swan, this year we are decorating the entire back of the house as well, and we decorate their business. So basically they're getting a great deal on the trees because their total package includes a lot.

Gotcha, we all have those!!!
I just was having a hard time grasping the price as my year to year stays the same and it is more than you guys.

But that has to do with area also, all of the pros around here are pretty close to each other in pricing.

I guess the number of lights does push the numbers. good to hear some folks charge more than me. The folks I bid and my current customers think I am crazy expensive !
