Default Help on garden block bid

Customer has 91 linear feet wants garden block installed, whats usually the going rate do you charge by foot or is it by the hour.

I know for installing pavers rate around the area i live in is between 15-19 dollars a foot.

Thanks,
Ramon

How long are you thinking it would take you to remove the old rock and then replace it with the new?

Keep us posted on how this turns out. I'd love to see some pictures.

I am still not able to picture the job in my head.

Is this going to be a walkway?

Have you figured out how many sq ft of block this is?

steve-customer found it to be too expensive, there is a lot of people around my area who do work at a very cheap price. quality of work isn't always there but i guess that's what people want.
