need help with pricing!

Hello my name is tyler, i am a senior in a high school landscaping program. I have recently landed landscape through school to re landscape a mini putt putt course. the course isnt that big but has a lot of landscaping. I met with the owner after school the other day and she wants red crushed brick out in all the beds, stumps removed, tree/shrib trimming, some transplanting, and to fix a giant water fall.. i will have to haul out the old mulch from the beds and edge them.. its basically a big clean up job , but s is my first big job i have done by myself and im not sure what ball park to be in when pricing it.. could anyone give me some advice thanks!

You need to figure out your time and material and how much you want to make. But dont get greedy because you might lose the job.

Their putt putt areas look pretty bad too. No clue on pricing that. Good luck.

You need to itemize things in your mind. How long will it take to do one particular task and multiply by numer of tasks.
