Estimating for mulch

What should I charge to do mulch? Say I'm going to put out 3 scoops of mulch, how much should that be?

Never heard of a unit of measurement called a scoop. Mulch is usually figured in cubic yards.

Picking up the mulch (3yards), delivering the mulch, putting it down and spreading the mulch and all you make is 60. Waste of time... Your making pennies.
