    Need some help with an estimate. I will be supplying all the materials and installing all of it.

    Leyland Cypress trees x2 @ $15.00 each
    Shrubs x10 @ $12.00 (what I pay)
    Landscape Edging (the customer wants it, Im not a big fan) x 6 20 ft sections
    Landscape Timbers x3 @ $6.00 Each

    Come up with a hourly rate and determine how many hours the job will take. I would also mark the materials up 15%. Based on the materials your installing I would say this job would take approx 6-8 hours. I would also include fuel cost, dump fees (if any) and any other direct costs you will have. Hope this helps!
