    I have a lawn business in michigan one of my accounts asked if I would put in a bid for planting flowers. I don't do much landscaping but I would like to put the bid in. My question is how much should I charge by the hour? the customer is buying the plants all I have to do is provide the labor I now how much I like to charge 25.00 hr is this to low or should I charge more, any ideas would be great.

    Thanks for any help

    You might want to charge per plant, you may make more than your 25.00 hourly labor rate. Depending on plant you may want to use a drill to speed things up. All situations are diff ,good luck.

    Your question is very your subject line you use the word"plants" then flowers . What is it they would like planted..annuals? If so many per flat etc? Do you have to prep the area?
    Might be able to help with a little more info.
