Price for planting bulbs

I have a customer who wants me to plant bulbs,
She is purchaseing them and just wants me to cultivate the soil and plant. So far she has 200 bulbs.
How would you price this?

I plant lots of bulbs. I usually charge around a dollar each for planting big bulbs like tulips and daffs. Less for small bulbs like grape hyacinths and crocus. Extra for fertilizer. I use a bulb auger (available at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc) and a corded drill. Battery powered drills burn up too fast when they have to drill into the ground. Charge more in clay soil or under trees.
Good luck.
