I still think you are under by about a thousand dollars. Obviously you are in an area where either the market is weak or other landscapers are driving down prices. I see it like this..
Mulch cost+Labor+markup+Delivery=$3500
Rock and delivery=$110
Weeding=$720
Edging and spraying around trees=$600
Grass Killer=$100
Final Cleanup=$100

Total $5130

Thats where my prices would be at. And did he mention the coupon or not? If not, then no discount. Sounds like a large property too. May way to rent a front end loader to help out and that means rental and fuel costs, but reduced overall labor time. Good luck

^^^ Im with him. For a nightmare of a job like that your gonna want to have plenty of labor in there. Weeding is a pain in the asss and moving stone around by hand is not easy especially stones like riverbed rock, etc. Use a tractor or skidsteer if possible to save time.

Where you at in pa? This isnt your customer.....Remember...they want great service and results...in order for you to provide them with that.....they must pay a life sustaining wage! Im in pa as well(southwest). I would just shake this mans hand and tell him to flag down a couple of people working out of there pickup....good luck and stand your ground....do too many jobs @ this price and you will be searching for a new job....
