Matt wrote: “I have a flower bed(2 big flower beds)(the pic above)1 flower bed on each side of the sidewalk. I am trying to get, i have been pricing around on plants and trees and such. I am not going down the sidewalk like i thought i would, so just in front of the house.
I was going to ask would you think this price would be reasonable for the homeowner to say yes, and start it.
I am buying all landscaping material……
What i have thouight of so far is:
pink crape myrtles(2)
cost of landscaping materials is around $775
doubling cost would be $1550. This is how much I would charge for the landscaping project.
my profit would be $775 for making flower bed from scratch and planting all material.”
Projected man hours to complete the landscape job: Matt said, “I would take 1 entire day. I can do the landscaping job by myself.”
