    I don't know what you are doing with the soil and I don't usually plant for people who buy the plants themselves but I'd say around 300.00/375.00
    I'm guessing without knowing the planting conditions.

    They already got it all planned out and it's all set and ready, what do they need an Lco for?

    But, if you need the work the smaller plants are easy, 2 dollars each = $100.
    Those 15-gallon ones sound a bit murderous, I'd say close to $100 each as well, total of $400.
    Better catch me on a good day thou, I'm half wanting to bid 1200, anybody can do the first part, everybody wants to do it, suddenly there comes the hard part and now the steam runs out, hmmm... 375 minimum.

    Don't forget to call Miss Utility before driving the first spade in the ground, it's the law.

    Just what exactly are you talking about Topsites? You make no sense at all.
