Mulching & Weeding Job Price

Is 40 $ a Yard a good price for spreading the mulch and weeding out the garden if the owners are paying for the cost of the of the mulch?

How many yards do you have to put down?

Also how big and bad of are or areas to do weeding?

Weeding+hands to me is in a hourly range by itself it sucks bad why customers want someone else to do it for them.

when i bid a job...i have a mulch install price per yard and a weeding price added together. If they are supplying the mulch...i would figure $30 per yard if its pretty easy to install. And i calculate $40 per hour to weed. So lets say there are 10 yards to install with an estimated 3 hours of weeding. My bid would be $420

Mulch that is easy to install (close to the truck / pile, few flowers to work around) should go down at a rate of around 1 yard per 40-45 minutes. So my $30 per yard equals at least $40 per hour.

Finally...my bid would say something to the affect of:
To weed and install 10 yards of mulch.....$420

I never put my hourly rate down for the customer to see. It would not go well here in Ky. I get about 40-50% of my bids.....so im right where i need to be in pricing.
