    Just curious to what percentage of markup you guys do for certain jobs. As I know all of us want the most profit out of a job as possible, but we also don't want to out bid or go crazy with the price. We have done a few patio areas before along with rock work and landscaping as well, but over the past couple of years the demand has grown from one or two a year to 8+ within 6 months. We already have our cost for materials figured out, but I'm just curious in how much you guys actually mark up and pocket as profit. Thanks for all your answers and if you have any more question just ask.

    Depends but we charge anywhere from $18 to $24 a square foot

    I've never charged by the sqft. I just figure out what materials, equipment rentals etc cost. Mark up all that a certain percentage, and then decide how much I want to make off the job.
