I'm sure this has been posted before, but I couldn't find it.

Customer wants a simple flower bed done. Found all of the prices at Lowes + Home Depot herself. She wants to just buy them herself and then give me the receipt to go pick them up.

I mark up materials even when I buy them at retail stores in order to cover travel time, taxes, etc... When my business has grown in size I certainly will not be doing this type of thing, and I don't want to start with her. How do you all go about this type of thing?

Clients like this are looking to save themselves money by using cheap/inferior plants/materials but expect you to make them into something amazing that cannot happen with that product. I turn these down because the headache isn't worth it.......but if you are going to do it charge them for your time.
