    $25 for anything under 10" and not more than 5 items.

    $55 for anything under 10" and not more than 15 items.

    $95 for anything under 10" and not more than 20 items.

    $150 for anything under 10" and not more than 30 items.

    One fair sized tree = $65 plus soil, fert, mulch so $85 total

    Two or more fair sized trees $150.

    Anything more than above is $85 per hour and minimum time is 2 hours plus travel surcharge of $25.

    Hope it helps.

    I pay $9.96 for a 32 cup Flat, and I charge $35.00 per flat installed, includes soil, building up of beds, and Fertilizer. 7 Flat minimum. Just finished my largest Job of the season so far, 550 Estate edge Pavers, 25 flats, and 10 tons of Lava Rocks, which would be like 20 something tons of Egg Rock, and some new shrubs and trees. But your charge will depend on how creative you are with your designs, and your knowledge of flowers and other landscape Material. I think I lost out on over 15k last year because I didn't know all that I do this year
