    I have heard a number of formulas for pricing installation. What do you'all use?
    If the wholesale of a three gallon shrub is $ 7.50, how much installed and what does that include? Also larger plants such as 45 gallon. Say wholesale of a tree is $ 200.00 again how much installed and what does that include?
    How much for bed construction, mulch ect.?

    I take the price of the plant and double the price after tax.
    Mulch, I double and add labor to put it down.
    Shaping Bed edges with power bed edger is .50 per foot.
    Large tree and other plants that are over 150.00 I work with the customer.

    Hope this helps
