    First time posting here. Have been reading this board for a while and I am quite impressed. I have had a small lawn service , part-time for about 10 years (two years seriously, mowing only) and hope to be doing this full-time next year. I am in the process of estimating my first "landscaping" job for hire ever, and I need some advice. It only consists of three beds, (no bigger than 4x8 each). The homeowner wants them tilled, fabric installed, planted with a few flowers, and mulched. I know how to do the work, but I am not sure what guidelines to use in pricing this job. If I do it well it could lead to other small jobs like this and possibly more lawns to mow. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
