No need to remove old mulch unless he really wants it done... but it will cost alot. Do not forget disposal fees if he really wants it out of there. I usually charge $75 -$80 per yard including edging. I would be about $960 without removing old mulch and aslong as the beds were not to far from the mulch pile. If it is a long distance, charge more. Once again no need to remove old mulch....If he wants it take his money and charge alot... will not be easy or quick.

Appartments can be a pita with some of the requests they give, but if they want the old mulch removed, charge them accordingly. My figures are as follows
Removal of old mulch (12 yd) 6 hours @ $35 hr = $210
Disposal fees = $28.50
12 yard mulch @ $36 yd = $432
labor to install mulch (12 yd) 6 hr @ $35 hr = $210
Total - $880.50
Didnt figure the edging in though
