    I have been contacted to do a job that I am not quite sure how to bid. I could probably figure it out if it was a little smaller but it is a bigger job and I could use a little help. This project is looking for bullet edging totaling 900 ft.
    I am not familiar on how much to charge or a rate in which to figure the bid. Can anyone help me out?

    Are you setting them in Mortar or not.

    Depending on the price, most guys around here try to get 3-5 dollars a foot for something like that.

    Depending on the size and amount installed we either do $4 per foot or figure how long it will take us in hours multiplied by $55 per man per hour. Plus materials with a 40% mark-up
