Bill this out!

First off a total of 204.5 man hrs, edging aprox. 1300 ln ft + 35 tree ring ranging from 5' diameter to 10', hauling out of 6.5 dumptruck loads of old mulch, arb needles, install weed mat to aprox. 650ln ft x 7, install aprox. 45 tons of crushed red brick that cost me 50.00 scoop., which you get about 2 scoops per ton. this also include 31 scoops of red dyed mulch.

posts like this are kind of irritating..

you have all your materials listed, and you know how much labor was involved.... can you not figure a price????

do you not know what your operating costs are????

you didn't say all that...

your post sounded like you were asking for others to help you come up with a figure to bill out....

obviously this was the case, as the only two other responders thought so as well......

Who cares what others are making, if your happy with your profits then why bother? If your not as new as you say you are you should have an idea of what the comp would charge anyways.

It is a tough thing to calculate only because you have varying costs. For example, do you charge $60/hour for edging and was it done manually? If I did, even here in Fairfield County, I wouldn't be working. However, we have bought machinery that makes us more efficient. Therefore, I can charge less per hour but make more per hour due to being done quicker. What do you charge for windshield time?

Listen Buddy, when you 1st posted you made yourself sound really ignorant, even in my mind "I'm wonderin does this guy have anything written to go with the work he is doin?".....Ya know not everybody looks at peoples profiles before given them an answer?.......and bein a "Pro" you could have offered your operating cost, to make it easier on us?......just some words of wisdom Steve
