Group I also posted this in the "Just Starting a Business" forum... I know it is a big request, but it will help members in the future. Instead of a member asking how much should I charge for mulch? How much for sod? I scrolled the past 30 days and there are 10 different questions about mulch and 8 about sod prices. They can reference this thread, instead of weeding through 30-60 days of threads. I have been working in the landscape industry for years. More of a weekend helper, part time. I am starting a company and need help with pricing. It seems a lot of pricing and estimating information is scattered throughout different forums. If we have one post with it all in one place I think it would be great for new and existing members. This site and members are the best by far I have been to about a dozen sites the last couple of weeks. We can use this guide for many new landscapers and some veterans who need help with estimates. I will list services and if you can fill in the prices. All these prices are under the impression it is normal residential and commercial conditions. Nothing crazy like steep hills and other obstacles. I will take everyones pricing and average them out and repost all the averages. Services: (Please add it I missed any services) Lawn Care: Pricing for mowing, trim and edging - Residential - Commercial Thatching Aeration Sod Installation Hydroseeding Power Seeding Tilling Hardscaping: Installation of Patio Pavers Installation of raised patios with pavers Face Price per square foot for retaining/nursery stone walls (normal and difficult grades) Ponds: Installation of the plastic tub ponds Installation of a natural pond with rock and rubber mats What is the cost of Koi? Mulch: Price per yard installed Blown mulch price per yard installed Price per bad installed Rock: Price to install River Rock/big rock in mulch beds Walkway small stone installation (not pavers) Slate installation Irrigation: Pricing per square foot Soil: Install a yard of soil Price for making a new bed approx. 10x3 with a centerpiece tree Lighting: Installation of low voltage lighting Spring/Fall Clean-ups: Price per man hour I am not sure if any members build decks. If you do, the price per square foot for wood or composite. How much upcharge for a second story deck. Thank you for taking the time to fill in some or all of the pricing questions.
