i never bid stone work but i have to bid a job tearing down TWO 12 x 8 foot "planter boxes". the old blocks are deteriorated. I have already priced my block materials with crusher stone, and will get new plant prices tomorrow with some soil and mulch. my only question is labor cost. i have to obviously take them down (looks like 2 courses with cap) rip out all the plants,dispose of all materials, and then build new boxes and put in new plants and mulch. the job is close to me, getting materials is also very close, so not much driving involved. I'll have 1 helper. we are both skilled tradesman so i feel we can knock the job out in a reasonable amount of time while still doing an A+ job. but i feel i have been shooting too low on jobs lately and im not doing myself any favors. i need this to be worth my time but dont want to be rediculous either. i'll pay my helper maybe around 15/hr or so. so materials aside what would be a good labor cost total for both. i have yet to crunch the numbers myself but im a bit curious what others would do. here are the two boxes. I have 3 days left to place my bid.
