    I really enjoying doing my landscaping work for my clients but quoting is a real pain because prices keep on changing on me. I was wondering if anyone had a good formula for quoting hardscapes, landscapes, lawncare, lighting, irrigation etc.

    I have read about alot of people making formulas to help them quote faster please can someone help me with my quoting problems.

    I know exactly what you're talking about, that used to bother the heck out of me, too.

    But it boils down to some silly things...
    Practice, experience...(memory)
    Just takes time.

    Can someone pass on a formula?

    I sometimes use -- double materials and add a labor charge.
