So 67ft x $15.00 = $1005.00

201 Blocks @ $1.78 each = $360.00
Labor $300
If you can think of so things I am missing or need to think about please share!
Way too cheap.

Well can you give me some advice. So I will not be sitting in someones backyard wanting to kick myself in the AXX.

My bid is due Monday. So any info would be great. I got everything I need as far as the job goes. I am about 99.9% sure it's I can handle it. I just don't want to leave money on the table. I feel like if I run around doing this work for way to low it will overall hurt all of us. Of course if I am way to high then I will not have to worry about doing it at all. This must be a big secret number.

Way too low. Hopefully you got the pm this time and can contact him.

Bid to make money....including some accidental oversights.
Look at it this way, better to bid too high and not get a job than bid too low, lose your ass, spend more money from your pocket to get it right.

Pavestone is much more than just stacking blocks, trust me.

Good luck and get in touch with Mike.

Thieves

Just an FYI.

Lock your equipment up tight, bring it inside if possible. There is a professional crew of thieves going around dallas robbing shops and landscapers blind. They have a gotten a number of my friends and a number of shops in the metroplex within the last month.

Nice to finally get some rain!!!!!!!!


Does anyone have a commercial insurance agent they could reccomend. I was using one and they dropped Allied, the line they were representing, and my policy will not renew with them because of that. This is for General Liability lawncare and landscape plus applicator coverage.

Thanks,
Jason

Time to play in the mud!!
