    How much should I charge my customer to install 3 gallon sized shrubs? I will install about 14 shrubs . Just looking to see how much to charge per shrub. I paid $10 per shrub. Thanks

    20-25 bucks a piece includes plant and install or 15-18 bucks a plant plus your hourly fee =$$$ figure out how long it will take you and go from there.

    I double the plant charge ,plus charge my hourly rate of 50.00 per hour. so I280.00 for plants plus 50 if it takes an hour and 100.00 for 2 hours (material with sales tax is included)profit will be between 200-250

    I would charge $420 and guarantee them for 1 year.

    $10 x 3 x 14 = $420

    It would take me about 2 - 2.5 hours to plant with a total profit of $280
