    I was asked to plant some pansies in this upscale neighborhood. I'll me with the woman and give her a quote. I plan on charging about $40.00 per flat.

    I plan on tilling in soil amenmants and then slipping on my knee pads and planting away. Just want to make sure I'm in the right ball park with my price.
    I hear guy's hear charging anywhere from 35-65.00 per flat.

    How much would you charge?

    I planted 700 on Tues. Was a bit sore on Wed., prolly because I didn't want to get my knees all dirty and wet so I did it stooping and bending. They look good though.

    we've been planting 45 flats a day all week & got more to put in next week. As far as pricing I'mnot sure about your market but around here they go for 25-30 per flat plus soil ammendments.

    Best 20 dollar investment I ever made was teh auger. 2 guys and you can plant 10 flats an hour with one. One drills one plants.

    1000 plants at 21 flats. Looking right at 700 including fert and casaron. Drill and plant. Total cost you are looking at 420. and 4-5 man hours.
