    Ok....I have this paver patio job that i`am getting ready to bid on.(Tomorrow) Its a 14` x 24` paver patio. Part of the patio will go in between 2 lager oak trees. Should be far enough away to hit any roots with size or even damage the trees! Nice ground. So my depth should need only about 8" cut. The patio will have few curves. I`ll be using the Holland pavers for this job! I came up with the estimate right around $3,100. Does this seem low or i`am I close? Thanks again

    ahh please don't come to my part of MD with that pricing. I would consider installing deep root protection plates for the hardscape with those trees close by.

    Understand the deep root protection plates. But my question was about the price.

    About $6000 if its easy access. What about lawn repair if you're using a skid loader to move materials?

    You're way low. There are a lot of small things that come up that extend the time needed to complete a job like this.

    Well if you are a one man show and you have a wheelbarrow, shovel, pickup and trailer with a ramp. Then sounds about right. Now in my case it would cost me about 3100 just to do that job. So about double for me would work alright. If access was good.

    You are way low on that price my friend. Your price should be more than double that number. You have at least 2 grand in materials! For the whole install and clean up on that size project my price would be 6,800
