    thats a tough one to est from afar....what if we take a shot at labor only? did you have to tear anything out or did you just spary with round up and start dumping top soil? with a little more info I'll take a wild guess but I'll probably underestimate...every time I work with block it takes me longer than I think it will ....cant seem ti learn from prior estimate errors

    For that size/style block (4X8X12) we get approx $21/sq ft face or $7/block stone cost under 2.25 each. Soil since small amounts barrowed in at least $65/yd. Perrennials approx $15-$20 each since their sizable, and mulch approx $55/yd.
