    5.5 hours @ $45.00/person

    100% mark up on plants ( or more if you have my nursery:D )

    30% mark up on materials

    $35.00 hour/person planting/mulching

    Rough guestimate.

    I work solo. Hourly misc labor removing hedges,trimming $50-60hr. or more if the shrubbery required chaining to remove. 37 Arbs 5-6' locall wholesale is $38 I usually install for $75 since they are so simple and take 10-15 min each in good soil. 3 yards mulch $150, 2 yards screeded topsoil $140-180 depending on side of town. $3615-3795. If that seemed to high, I would void any warranty on the arbs and knock off $300-400 since so many die if they are not well watered, depends on the type of customer and time of year.

    If you called me and gave all of that info I'd know you were price shopping and not service or quality oriented.

    I would politely refer you to someone else.

    But thanks for the call and please let me know if we can be of service in the future. ;) :D
