    quick question pertaining to quoting... hypothetically speaking, if i were to be asked to clear a given section of land ( nothng too large, mainly comprised of loose underbrush and small plants) and make it suitable for mulching. how would one go about pricing this... also, does anyone have any good links to sites/threads with how to accurately quote jobs. i currently charge customers an hourly rate and would like to start giving flat quotes... thanks in advance

    It mostly comes with experience. try vander kooi's manual for landscape construction.

    Nothing super scientific just think of how long it will take you and multiply in you hourly rate.
