    cost of shrubbery

    I am actually trying to find this information on the internet but I can't. Does anyone happen to know how much it costs to buy shrubbery? It can be any type of shrub, I need an estimate for a school project (planting around a lake with 64 mile circumference to provice a buffer zone to prevent phosphates from the watershed from entering the lake itself)

    i've tried searching on google and epa.gov but I can't find how much it costs for a freaking packet of shrub seeds omg

    EDIT: my mom just told me you don't buy seeds, you buy the shrubs themselves. can anyone confirm this?

    Yea you buy the actual shrub and transplant it. We did this when i was in landscaping, we paid between 20-30 dollars US per shrub, dependent on size and type.

    Yeah I just got done talking with my dad about it and he told me the exact same thing, but thanks for replying RoD.

    64 miles at 20-30 bucks per shrub?

    if they're 5 feet apart

    5280 / 5 = 1056 per mile
    1056 shrubs per mile * 64miles = 67584 shrubs altogether
    if each shrub costs 20 bucks then 67584 * 20 = $1,351,680 for planting shrubbery...AHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHA...we should just buy a bomb, drop it somewhere else, and fill the hole with water and say we fixed the problem.

    The formula isnt really accurate in real life. Often as you buy in bulk (for use it was 10 shrubs) the price for the remainder my be like 10 bucks. So we would pay 20 per for 10 and 10 per for the rest.

    We used these in many many many projects, mostly making properties look nice, help erosion, shade, etc.

    Well considering how much we need I think that the price per shrub would go down to less than a dollar apiece. The real cost for this (hypothetical) problem would be the man power required to put the shrubs in the ground!

    This is obviously because you lack the superiour intelect required to appreciate the subtle humourous nuances of a killer bunny rabbit. The genious involved is so profound it humbles the greatest of us.
