We are submitting a bid to rip out some of the dying/existing plants and install new ones. This potential client was given a layout by another landscaping company to give her yard more curb appeal. Apparently, this company doesn't have the time to start on this anytime soon. My question is we've done other installs before (much larger), but after reading on this site I'm starting to question how we charge for certain items. Should there be a charge for each plant that is planted or by the hour? Most of the plants are 1 gallon with the exceptional 5g. Also she needs new bark laid down so I'm thinking we should charge per yard rather than by hour as well. It seems that anything that can be broken down into numbers is better off having a set rate rather than per hour so the client can't complain; with the exception being weeding. Any advice would be appreciated.
