I just got a call from a friend of mine who works at a restaurant and said they need some landscaping done. The place needs 4 small tree's cut down only a 4' trunk and 15 feet tall each, 15 yards of mulch installed, and a couple of small shrubs replaced. The tree's will have to be replaced with new ones. The mulch just installed, no weed barrier just freshened up I will cut new bed lines to make it look cleaner also. I asked him just out of curiosity if anyone has bid the job and he said the company that cuts there grass placed a bid at $6600.0 I thought that it was a lot on the high side. Then I asked if anyone is going to bid and he says no. I talked to the manager and he was a little pissed about 6600. dollars. So my main question is why did this company bid the job so high. I came up with $1800. in material alone. Any idea's what you guys would bid. Also if I do get the job the stumps will have to be ground out. Would it be all right to plant the trees in the same spot the old ones came out of.
