I am pricing out a retaining wall a customer we just re-landscaped there entire property. Total facial (sq. ft.) comes to roughly 515 (including those buried). Caps are roughly 210 linear ft. The wall will be built on either side of a driveway between 2-4 ft. tall with some curves added. My supplier claims that very little cutting will need to be done with the above block. IN addition we are going to have built to circular planters in the front yard one being 50 ft. and the other 35 ft. in circumference roughly 1-2.5 ft. tall. They are within 50 ft. of driveway and accessible with a smaller skid steer. All walls are to be capped with units from Rocvale which are tapered. Driveway is flat and can easlily accomadate a large excavator and all materials. We will back fill with roughly 6-9 inches 3/4 gravel depending on height along with a base 24" wide/ 9" deep / 140 ft. long. I am estimating between blocks, Qp, gravel, caps, etc. plus excavation from outside company roughly $1,750 that total cost comes to roughly $22 per facial ft. I have a friend/builder who uses a very skilled company that I would like to sub out the job to. I will supply all materials, tools, machines, etc. with the exception of a demo saw and a truck. Additional materials will be trucked in or picked up by us. They are charging me $6 per facial foot , with the area completely excavated and ready for base install. They have done alot of high quality work in my area and have about 50 men working for them.. Owners are from South America so they can easily communicate with their men. My costs are coming in at roughly $28 per facial ft., I am thinking of charging $34. . This wall stone is quite expensive at roughly $14 per facial ft. , but it is the only stone that will match the cultured stone veneering on the house. OH, in addition their will be two sets of steps to be installed right off the driveway. One is a straight 4 ft. wide step roughly 8 steps long the other a 1/4 circle roughly 7 ft. wide / by 7 steps high. They will be done with the same blocks and cap. 510 facial ft. X $35 per = $17,850 steps w/ walls amount to rougly 60 facial ft. X $50 per facial ft. = $3,000 Total Price = $20,850 with a 5 year guarantee. I will earn $7 per facial ft. on the wall and roughly 12 on the steps coming to a total of roughly $4,200. What are your thoughts on the pricing of this job. Any help from EXPERIENCED Hard Scape Contractors would be appreciated. IN addition, I have a great repour with my customers and have installed several walls in the rear of house including a patio. I also want to be fair on the pricing\.
