    ;)example say 20 bushes at $10.00 a piece so thats $200.00 bucks you estimate 15 miniautes to install each one that's about 5 hours. so how much do you mark up the bushes? 10%,20% why not 50%?If your average is $25hr for lawn maintenance residential should your rate go up for this type of landscaping or maintains you flat rate? this example is for residental not commercial pricing. the average rate in my area is about 25.00 to 30.00 a cut edge and blow. thats usually less than hr.this is just a one man crew... any imput would br great, the last thing I want to do is undercharge
