Planting Prices?

I have a customer who would like me to plant 5 - 5ft arborvitaes for her. How much should I mark up the materials and what should I charge to install them ? Thanks

Charge retail for the plants(hopefully yur getting a contractors price) plusextra for compost or peatmoss or whatever you back fill with, plus a few hours labor. 1 guy could prolly do it in an hour to an hour and half as long as the soil is fair and not rocky.
