Hello, I enjoyed reading the forum very much...But I need help pricing my custom container gardens. I have customers
whom I design for containers...I come to their house...or if the pots are small I can do it in my nursery/garden center. Rarely anybody complain...I don't know if I am being fair to them or myself. I love the work but I hate having to price it. Please, can anybody help me with the price of delivery, design e instalation.Where can I find
a small businness model I can follow. I have done this for the last 7 years. I want to it in a more serious way.

If you can live on it and they will pay it, you're in the range.

Thanks for the comments!
"I don't live on it" I would love to...

I was hoping for some numbers I can compare my work to...Do you price it by the hour plus materials? do you price it by the size of the container? Thanks!
