    I have been installing landscapes for a large restuarant chain for the past 4 years.I also maintain about 20 of thier stores on a regular basis for 7 years.
    My estimating technique for the landscaping and irrigation has been to double the materials price and thats it. Additional charges are usually equipment { skid steer } usage at 50.00 per hour.

    Is this a common estimation technique.

    Seems to me your kinda bidding low. Your gross profits should run close to materials times 3 unless you have a good fuel and maintenance source.
