Pricing...Landscape Project

just done a quick landscape project for this lady.
4 crape myrtles, 18 needle point hollys, 1 hydrangae bush, pine needles. she had a limited budget so i couldnt make it as appealing as i would have liked.

the pictures below were taken right after i threw the needles down so they look rough.

just wondering how much you guys would have charged for labor...solo project.

like i said, i planted 4 crapes, 18 hollys, 1 hydrangae, spread 20 bales of needles...truck load of compost/top soil for each plant

plants, shrubs, top soil, needles cost $705 (actual cost, no upcharge added...yet)

** also willing to listen to criticism **tips welcomed



1. before pic (killed hill with quick pro)


2. before pic where i planted hydrangae


3. after pic of overall job 90% complete


4. after pic where i planted hydrangae


5. pine around unit

She had 2 year old needles there already so I just kept it like she had it (needles around a/c). She said her dog likes to pee around the unit and it'll just kill the grass anyway

That actually looks pretty sharp. I might use that once in a design. Just one question. How does it hold up (long term look). How is the maintenance with that.

Maintenace...trimming hollys once every blue moon and pruning crapes once every year, maybe.
Low maintenance!! replacing pine once a year or every 6 months depending on the customers budget

Am I missing something or will this all be washed down the hill when the next big rains begin. Looks like water coming from behind the fence creating big ditches. Looks nice though.
