    I am curious to know how much difference there is in everyone's pricing.

    How much would you charge to plant five 5gal Pampass Grass plants?

    (I know it's a small job, but I am more interested in everyone's rates.)

    The price always changes. Too many variables. Do you have to pick-up and deliver or is it the customers responsibility? How much prep work and clean-up?? Things like that. If it was me and it was a regular customer it my charge around $25. per plant, depending on variables.

    Ok. Let's say they are sitting right where they go. Not too many rocks. Guestimate.

    Pampas grass? $25.00 each, or I don't touch the stuff. And that's for LITTLE ones. Those things drive me nuts, scrape me all up, sleeves or no sleeves. That's like getting me on your roof; you're gonna $$$$ for that.

    SKH charges $75. per tree as a base rate. The price goes up as the gallons go. I charge pretty much a minimum of $15.00 for small containers #2 & 3. More as the gallons increase.

    I think plantings are easy $$
