    Im giving an estimate tomorrow on a field stone retaining wall. It will be about 80' by 8" high. I estimate Ill need at least 2 pallates of stone. These with delivery will come to about $500. I normally charge double cost on hard scapes, but this job wont take more than a day. Should I charge $500 for labor?

    Check the landscaping forum. I moved your first post over there, because I think you will get more response over there.

    do a search on it. your bid doesn't seem right of $500 labor, if you chagre $50 for you and 1 guy for a 8 hour day that will be $400.what do you mean by a 2 day job , how many hours each day???
