    Around here to just plant the shrubs and trees we price at 35.00 for a five gallon pot or smaller , and 50.00 for anything up to 10 gallon. That does not include anything else just digging the hole and planting them. Hope this helps.:)

    I multiply wholesale cost by 2.25. Unless it's on a hill or is affected by unusual circumstances.

    MPhillips does that include your labor/overhead?

    We charge a 40% profit on plant material + 45$/manhr + overhead..........of course i am in the south....so prices will differ from that of Heller Landscaping.

    You should charge enough to cover yourself, if they die and you have to replace them. ;)
