    Need some help with an estimate. I will be supplying all the materials and installing all of it.

    Mulch x2 yards i pay $14.00 here
    Leyland Cypress trees x2 @ $15.00 each
    Shrubs x10 @ $12.00 (what I pay)
    Landscape Edging (the customer wants it, Im not a big fan) x 6 20 ft sections
    Landscape Timbers x3 @ $6.00 Each

    Thanks, Brian

    Come up with a hourly rate and determine how many hours the job will take. I would also mark the materials up 15%. Based on the materials your installing I would say this job would take approx 6-8 hours. I would also include fuel cost, dump fees (if any) and any other direct costs you will have. Hope this helps!

    $850.00-900.00$ but that's with out looking at it 1000.00 may even be more accurate
