    I have a tree service and am starting to expand into landscaping.
    Wondering how other folks charge for their services. I have been taking the material costs (rounded up a bit) and mutiplying by 2.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated?

    i'll bite........

    yes a lot of times material x 2

    sod do at $1-$150 square foot depending work involved.........extra grading etc

    masonry material x 3 is a safe bet

    mowing maybe $50/acre and prorate however you need

    do a search under "charge" or something, should find a lot...........these are some rough basics above^
