    Hi everyone, this is my chance to make it in the landscaping world. However, I have no idea what to charge my first big customer. I know prices vary from location,so I am letting you guys know I'm located in Houston Texas. The owner of the apartment complex got together with a landscaping architect to draw out the plans and he gave me a list of everything that is needed for the job. I still need to get the prices of the trees and so on...For example; I don't know what to charge to plant a 45 gallon tree?
    What the cost of labor and overhead would be?
    I know I can do this job and I would really appretiate any feedback,
    I have attached all the plans. Thank you everyone for this website. :confused::)

    I will rent one for a week, and I'm thinking 3-4 man crew.

    I would do a search on this site for budgeting. There are some really detailed discussions that will point you in the right direction. Make a spread sheet and cost out all of the specs....

    My Vancouver BC numbers wouldn't be relevant
