Can you believe this?

I wrote that title so you would read and help me out.

On a landscaping bid, for futur reference, how do I need to set it up? Give them the price for each different plants and materials followed by labor cost, and then payment plan. Or do I need to break it down further in each catergory (ei. Labor- Digging Clay Soil by hand and removing 3" of soil-$650, Hauling old soil to dispose -$450)

I am trying NOT to be SCRUB in the landscaping industry because this is where the real money is in this bus,

Thanks for the help

I do a labor ESTIMATE, and a materials cost (plus mark-up).

Terms are pre-pay materials and labor balance is due upon completion.

For the most part works out to be a 50/50 payment.


On edit: I never get into detailed itemization... basic materials + x man/hrs

One bill...One price.
The only breakdowns are what the job entails.
As
trimming (3) trees)
Mulching (4) beds ect.
no price break downs.
Just total cost & payment schedule

Thanks for the help, kind of left the payment option off a bid I sent in last week. hopefully I won't have to eat the cost of materials until I am done, and they will cut me a check.
