88 yards of mulch, so about 9000sqft of beds.
weeding all beds, just about all of them have pretty thick weed
edge all beds, about 800 feet of edging
pre emergent

mulch is 19 or 29 a yard my price , they wanted a price of both so just figure for the 29$ This is a building with a parking lot around the 2 sides which are gettin the mulch, so the pile at a central point and a skid, about 100 yards to the furthest point. i have a pretty good idea of what its gonna be, but i just wanted to input from you guys so if i dont get it im not kickin myself later, thanks alot guys

Bid it by price installed, not cost + labor.

$8500 That is what I would charge. Good luck.

What kind of weeds?
I would edge for 950
spray weeds with glyphosate 2x 5 days apart for total kill. pull weeds around plants. figure roughly cost of 500-1000
Have the blow and go guys blow in bark my cost 32 a yard charge 40 a yard.
total: max 6g figure around 5500 or so to be competitive.

depending on prep work (edging , weeding, removal) $85 - $100 a yard

Wrap 'em up or put plastic bags over good plants --spray Roundup on weeds. Take the bags off.

I came up with 8120 for triple shredded, includes weeding, pre-emergent, and edging
