Giving an Estimate

I just recently started my own landscaping business and today I received my first call to give an estimate. I calculated that it would take roughly 3.5 yards of mulch to complete the job so to be safe I told the customer I would use 4 yards. The beds are in pretty bad shape with weeds, rocks and over grown plants. The customer would also like me to edge around all of the beds before I spread the mulch. My question is how much I should charge to complete this job. I do not want to over charge the customer but I also do not want to under charge so I am not making money for the work I am doing. Please help me out to give him a fair price for this job. Thanks!
