    I have an elderly lady who wants a raised flowerbed with a brick border. She wants the 8" block about 3 high. Since it isn't really a retaining wall I was going to prep with sand and backfill with topsoil. I am worried about over charging her but I don't want to turn a two day job into a week and price myself out of profit because of cost. I was thinking about two days work including the prep time because I have to remove the stone and timber there now. Would $400 be out of line for material and labor. Is there any hidden obstacles I am missing for a job like this. Fire tips away If you have any I am always learning from you more experienced ones. THanks \\

    Two full days work? $720.00 + materials
