    I'm doing a small install for a lawn maintenance customer. He wants 27 grasses installed.... 9 at 5 gal and 18 a 3 gal or comparable. I will also need to get out the mantis and till and ammend the hardpan soil. The area is a long strip about 110 ft x 1.5 ft. I get the 5 gallons for $18 at my wholesaler, and the 3 gallons for $13.

    Specifically, what would you charge for 1) install per plant, 2) price for tilling, 3) plant mark-up.

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like a good old Time and Materials install.
