Commercial Landscape Architectural Standards

On many sets of plans (blueprints) there are drawings for standard planting specifications for trees, evergreens and shrubs. It says to use planting soil, size of stakes, B&B, mulch depth, ect....

Is there a rule of thumb for how much time to plan for labor or how much planting soil is used for each type? Any other standard info you may use on bids and help would be great.

Nope. You just have to sit down, do the calculation and figure it all out yourself. The experience and ability of your crew will greatly impact the numbers. If there was any kind of standard you wouldn't see such drastic variances in bids on commercial install projects!
