Planting Winter Annual Flowers

Ladies and Gents,

I have several commercial accounts that want bids on planting winter flowers such as pansies. Do any of you have any tips for rates of charge such as by the sq ft or by the plant or by the flat of plants? Otherwise I'll just have to estimate time and charge that way.

God will provide

I charge 42.00 per flat for 6-pac flats, 38.00 for 4" flats 13.00 for 1-gal and 38.00 for 3-gal. the price includes delivery and install and 30 day warranty.
