    Do you guys think this is a fair price to charge?

    1. 300 feet brick/paver edging
    2. Plant 3 1 gal. size arborvitaes
    3. Transplant 6 foot tall red cedar
    4. Put mulch around arborvitaes, cedar tree and 3 other trees
    5. Plant rose bush

    Total includes labor and me buying material

    Total $1300-$1400

    I think it's a little low to be quite honest with you.

    Walkway pricing around my area is 10.00 a sq ft. That would include your labor.

    The rest of the job sounds like a 400-500 task.

    Just my point of view.

    I would take the square footage of the walkway and base that on 10.00 per sq ft. It really depends on your material cost, what the conditions are like, ease of access to the area, etc etc.

    As far as the plantings go, if the tree costs 100.00 then I charge another 100.00 for the installation. It has worked out well in the past.

    Hope this helps.

    I have mostly high end clients that are not afraid to pay what it takes to get the job done right too.

    For the paver border acting as a curb I charge $8.00 to $10.00 a linear foot. Based on that I'd say you are to low.

    Peace,
