    would the company doing the retaining wall have to get a dumpster to collect the old blocks?

    I'll build it for $1,500.

    $200 for hay bales
    $100 for lunch/breakfast for the crew
    $1200 labor

    depends on how you treat me when I arrive for the estimate.

    Smile, speak nicely - you'll get our normal price.


    Act nasty, tell me about all the problems you've had with other contractors, argue with your wife/husband infront of me - I'll factor in the PITA factor and make it cost more.
