Ditto here on the weeds. Pulling them is a waste of your time, and your clients money. All those juicey roots you left in the siol will be sprouting new top growth in no time.
5 yds of muclc , delivered and installed would be about $300. with twelve man hours at $420 making it $720 total, plus dump fees, plus truck charge. But like I said, I would have done it differently.



Also, you gonna charge you customer extra because you gotta take two trips? You could have had it delivered for less that then the $52.50 you charged for that.
Oh, and we're not trying to critique you, we're trying to help.

3 men working---- 5 yards of mulch @ $75 per yard installed=$375.00 (approx 2.50 hrs)/ weeding beds--- $35 a man hour x 15.50 man hrs = $542.50 / disposal fee=$50.00 / total = $967.50
