Hey everyone, I'm new here and this is one of my first posts. Anyway, I recently had a guy call me wanting to get his beds re-mulched and strawed. Additionally, he wanted bushes and trees trimmed. I went over to give him an estimate. Keep in mind, I charge for time and materials. It is going to take about 2.5-3 CY of mulch and about 25 bags of pine straw just in materials. Around here that runs about 250-300 dollars. Additionally he wants about 2 days worth of shrub and tree trimming and beds weeded. I work alone but this is a larger yard. Regardless, my hourly rate is 25 and as in most all of my previous jobs, the cost of materials and the cost of labor to install them is very close to 50/50. Anyway, I quoted him about 700 dollars for the work (very labor intensive). He thinks its outrageous for what it is, and I think he's crazy for thinking anyone would do that much for any less. I am not willing to lowball just to get the job if it means I lose my butt on the job, but does that seem reasonable? Low? High? Etc. Thanks. I'm not new to the landscape business, but just recently found this forum, so maybe I can get some feedback.
