    I just bid my first landscape wall repair and want to know what you guys think.

    Total of 44 bricks moved 12" out from house and back fill with soil, weedblock and lavarock.

    I bid it at $450 plus materials (estimated no more than $50 since using existing bricks). I figured it would take two of us no more than 4-5 hours to complete.

    Any advice or comments re: this bid?

    How tall are you talking about---what do you mean 44 bricks, is this a wall or just an edge??

    It's just an edge stacked 4 high at the corner of the house and 2 high at the door. It's actually quite simple and have done to my own house, however i've never bid it before and was just curious...

    OK for the edge you figure 8-10 hours so 450 /10 is 45 an hour, does this work for you, if so you did good.
