Job Costing

I am working on an excel spreadsheet to take with me on a PDA for giving quotes on the spot.

For instance I know how to calculate how much mulch is needed but what do some of you people charge to spread per cubic yard?

What's the going price for putting down bales of pine straw per bale?

What do you charge per square feet of actual lawn mowing?

What do you charge per square feet of spike aeration?

What do you charge per square feet of fertilization?
