I just started my business last year and im still working out estimating issues. I am not sure how to price garden walls. And would appreciate any feedback. I will give as much detail as possible. I already priced the job but would like to know how far off i am to what i actually should be charging. It is 3 small walls. I am using nursery stone, 4" high x 12" long, that costs $3 a peice. There are 3 walls: 1) 27 linear feet. We are putting in 2 stones (8" high total) on the right side of bed that slopes down 24 inches. The wall with go from 2 stones high down to 6 stones high at the other end. Est total: 128 stones. 2) small 4x4 bed. At 2 stones high it will need about 16 stones. 3)around a tree that will need 28 stones. We will also be putting in crushed stone for support, topsoil and mulch in all beds. We priced as follows: 192 stones(2 pallets) upcharge $1 per stone = $4 per: $768 2 yards mulch at cost: $50 Crushed stone at cost: $25 1 yard topsoil at cost: $25 6 hours labor ($100 per hour for 2 men): $600 Total: $1468 - material: $628 --------------------------------- Profit: $840 Im not sure if the labor time is accurate. I think it might take longer as ive never done this before and its just the 2 of us. My partner has many times so he will be guiding me the whole time, he has never priced these types of jobs before. At this price we will make enough profit that im not worried if it takes a little longer. Can someone critique this for me. Dont hold back, blast as many holes in the plan as needed. I really need to learn the pricing on these types of jobs as my partner is relying on me to kinda run the business and he is the expert on the installations and services. hanks in advance!
