    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you could shed some light on how much I should charge a client of mine for transplanting some shrubs. She has about 40 decent sized indian hawthorne that she wants moved to a hillside behind her garage. How should I charge her? hourly? or by the bush???

    10.50 ea x 40 = 416.00 for transplanting

    You need to advise the client that the rate of survival for transplants is
    between 40 and 60 Percent.

    That means they may not survive the transplant and she may want to take another route.
