Configuring labor cost for garden wall

I am currently bidding a garden wall. The garden wall is 40 sqft and I amusing a 12x9x4 standard garden wall block (windzers). I have all my material cost configured but I am trying to deprive a labor price or a method that is effective. I have heard people charging by square foot and also know that it may vary depending on the size of block. Does the square foot rate included material? Any feed back is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

To price by the sq, you need your production rate, so how long is this going to take you is a question that needs an answer.

Thanks. Its my first year in the business so I've been loading my head with all these estimating methods and trying to find what is most effective.

The estimating method is the same for everything.
