    What do you'll chg. for installing flats, in my case lots and lots of iy. Usually I charge 1.5x plant cost, plus a little more for pick-up/delivery. That is if the plants are not guaranteed....For guaranteed plants the price is 2.5 x.....

    The problem with flats is that it is soooo time consuming. I was thinking of charging 1.6 or 1.65 x plant cost so I am still motivated to get the work done quick, but make the extra $ for the added time. Any thoughts of suggestions.

    you have to figure how long it's going to take you, and include your overhead to determine an hourly rate. Time and materials. :)
