    We currently charge a buck/minute. Up or down from there, depending on degree of difficulty and equipment used (tractor, bucket, ect.), and number of employees. For installs, double the cost of the plants, mulch, trees, ect. For shrubbery, we charge anywhere from $2-$5/shrub (size matters). I hear that you are looking for an employee! LOL...Talk to you soon :)
