    Hey guys,
    A lady I mow lawns for asked me today to price out lining the rest of her garden with castle block is what I call it.....their from home depot about 5 pounds and have a lip on the back. she only wants the block two rows high its on very level ground so no grading is really requires. I charge her 40 dollars to cut grass and trim and all that stuff and it takes about 45 min to give u an idea for proces round here. however she is very picky and dosnt like to spend money also she is in her 60s what do you think i shouuld charge ooo i forgot its only about 40 to 50 linear feet. Also old rotten 4x4 have to be taken out to make room for the new block. the block is also on site less then 15 ft away

    Im from allegany co., any way remove of ties pita to get rid of. You will still need some gravel for base to level. 1 ton should work. Sounds like a 1/2 day job for you being new at it. Add all of this up and give price.
