    I need pricing on planting per sq ft. for flowers shrubs trees.

    Call a local nursery and ask what their prices are. The prices vary according to the area. Shrubs and trees are usually priced at a per centage of their cost. Sod is priced per roll. Seed is priced per 1k. Mulch is priced per yard spread.

    Take the price of the plant. Then add 2 times price of plant to get your labor cost for installing the plant. Price for sq foot? Price for planting a sq ft of impatients would run about 4-6 bucks. Price for sq foot of hawthorne would be about 40 bucks. Figure out what you need planted, and what gallon size bucket their in.

    Learn YOUR costs!

    Give me a list of materials, I'll figure out costs
