$100 each service? You could figure that number to include taking care of everything.

These threads are great aren't they?

There is NO WAY for someone else to price it for you. You have to know what your company needs to make and apply that. Not every place is the EXACT same shape/size.

How would you price it if there was NO internet or other devices that would just tell you how much? How would you price a job period? Pricing jobs is part of YOUR job to know and understand. Why ask others to do that for you? It's not because you're lazy is it?

Really guys? I stop at 3 different ones almost daily for my free sweet tea refills. One has nothing but mulch and a few box woods. Another has about 2000 ft of viburnum hedge and the last has dry creek rock beds and color pockets. NONE of them had any grass. If you don't have your bidding skills perfected a commercial account is not for you.

How did you get the opportunity to bid? Yellow book? Mailer?
