Hey guys, I have never done anything with bagged mulch before, I always buy it in bulk and do the wheel barrow thing. This time around, I have a customer who wants that rubber mulch stuff put in. I said sure why not, did some research on it, go some samples etc. Now when determining my price, I am trying to figure out the labor rate on this. I know I can do about 2 yards of mulch per hour bulk but never have done bags before, so i dont know the time on it. I am basically going to be able to put the pallet right into my truck, back up to the beds (all the beds are right by the driveway and spread) Its 4 yards, I am figuring on about 1.5 hours for labor (no travel distance or anything spread a bunch of bags then rake it in) does this sound reasonable or no?
