How much would you charge?

Six yards of soil removal,
12 yards of mulch with landscape cloth underneath
9yarfs decomposed granite spread in the driveway and back yard
Also, a lot of leaf vacuuming

I don't know what material prices are in your area, or what A LOT of leaf removal means to you?

Very rough guess would be $1800 labor/ disposal and then material + markup.......

Only you know your operating expense add up how many hour you think it will take and then add in your material cost and mark up and that will give you your price

shovel or skid steer? removal in trailer vs dumpster? not all dumps take dirt. materials delivered or bought by trailer? if it was me I would rent a dump, skid steer, and get all material delivered. you will have set prices on those. mark them up by 10% or what ever you think is acceptable.$60hr for 2 men. if your slow as mud it will be 30min a yard unless there is prep. as for the leaves i would mow and bag, the tiny crumbs left can be blown into the beds before you put the mulch on top. you will save money not renting machines, dump and having delivery but f that, save your back. shoveling 6 yard off a trailer at a recycle center 30 miles away from the job sucks.
