Help with a bid please.

I am bidding a residential for the following

-redefine 510 lin. feet of edges
-25 yds mulch (beds are already clean)

I plan to bid $1500 for the mulch w/install.

Not sure about the edges though.

Thats alot of mulch. How many hours do you think putting mulch out will be? By yourself?

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

Thanks for the reply

I bid $1500 for the job, and the customer agreed. I will have two employees on the job with me. I think we can edge the beds, clean-up, and install the mulch in 6 hours.

+ cost of mulch or mulch included in the $1500 bid? What did you pay per yard for the mulch?
