How many per flat? Mine come with 18- 3" square at a cost of $12.50 to me and an installed price of $25-$30 depending on how many and full scope of the project.

Material and labor. If they need any more information than that, don't waste your time, you can't afford to.

Guess you haven't bid many sites with a lot of flowers they want to know in the contract how much per flat. That allows them a way to compare one company bid to another.

My customers don't have time for price games. Since the actual profit margin on annuals here in SW Florida is pretty low to start out with I have a pretty good idea what my profit margin is to be made. I work to earn a profit, my customers already know that.

Old post, but I just got asked to install annuals for a bid also. How big of an area dos a flat cover. Petunias is what was asked for. Does any one have a formula per square feet? Is the norm to bid it a a per flat basis?
