are you feeling your prices creeping up?

As gas has been going up, copper wire prices up, fixtures creeping up, I am finding myself adding a bit to my bids here and there to offset the increase I am experiencing in costs. Are you guys finding your prices you charge customers are increasing?

I wouldn't say they are increasing, I would say I am just having to get sharper and take less margin. In my area the medium size landscape companies are sharpening their pencils and hiring up all these guys who had their own companies. It's a super tight quoting process right now. You add 3-4 extra fixtures or one to many heads and it will be seen.
