    need help pricing this job. I am just starting and I have 33 3 gallon shrubs to put in and 7 yards of mulch. It's very easy access and the shrubs and mulch is already paid for. I only need labor cost.
    I appreciate it for the help

    It took me 13 hours , but I busted my but of. The guy had a quote of $2000.00 ,Shrubs and mulch included.He thought it was to much and bought the shrubs and mulch himself. I am thinking of $600.00 for labor
    Am I to low or to high?
