    Ok I have to make a Landscaping bid on some yard work for one of my custimers and I wanted to see how you guys compared? Here's what he'd like:

    1). Leveling out and reseeding about 2,000 sq. ft. of the yard.
    2). Would like to install some walking stones( large ones) to make a path about 10' long
    3) Would like some medium size beds to be made smaller by cutting off the parts that run along a fence by reseeding.
    4) Wants some brush removed
    5) Would like to plant about 4 trees about 6' tall and 3' wide to hide a porch.

    Now I will be charging $40 per hour just me doing all the work by hand. I'm estimting it will take around 20 hours, so about $800 for labor. Here are prices for supplies

    Estimated 3-4 yards of dirt needed @ $100 er yard
    Seed- 1 bag of Scotts Sun and Shade = $60 :D regular price x3
    PeatMoss- 3 bags at $15 per bag-= $45
    Stones- $3 a piece x about 10 = $30
    Trees/Bushes- $200 a pice x 5= $1000
    Brush Hauled- $50
    Tell me waht you think about $2085

    Respond please
