Tough call without seeing the job and knowing the area soil type. Only you know how fast you work and what your time is worth. The only thing I can recommend is that because you're unsure, give yourself ample time to complete the work, and charge the customer a reasonable fee, that is, if you think you can do it in 2 hours, give yourself 3, maybe 4 hours and if your rate is say $50 an hour, maybe charge $40 or $45. The trick is to not give your time away, yet not rape and pillage the client either.

Sorry not to be of more help. :cool:
