charging for garden service..
I've been gardening for 10 years (took Master Gardener class too) and this year someone has asked me to design several mixed flower pots and window boxes and I don't have a clue on how to charge. I live in a large metro area and know I don't won't to charge per hour. Could I add a percentage to the plant material (10 % ?) to pay for time driving and collecting and some profit make sense. In addition I'd charge according to size of pot size (including a design fee and soil cost-plus small profit). Or does anyone know of a book to calculate costs? Thank you- I'd appreciate any advice.
