    The most important questions are , How long will it take to prepare the recieving ground? How long does it take to dig each perennial? What is available for watering them in? Shoot for 100% survival of all plants by spending the necessary time to properly water them in. Can this be done in one day by one man? or 2days?
    Charge what you are willing to work for in a day and more if you can get it. If all the plants survive and are healthy, you are worth more next year.
