    Tell me your thoughts on this:

    Total Bid: $30,322.72 (with Tax)
    Total Mat: $17,970.56 (with Tax)
    Total Labor:$12,352.16 (with Tax)

    I realize that anyone that reads this has no idea of my local prices, but does this bid seem like it is in the correct price range for the amount of work to be done, or am I off?

    Job site is a level yard on 1/3 acre. Grading is fairly simple. House's in area sell from $310.000 to $500,000.
    I believe that this house is in the $360,000 range.

    I believe that I can do this install within 3 to 4 weeks

    5 days fence, gates, portch
    Mason works 3 or 4 days at same time as fence install.

    5 day install full sprinkler system
