I picked up this property at the beginning of this season. Good size yard, $100 every 7-10 days. Last time I was there the owner asked me what I would charge to clean out the beds in the front and put down new mulch. As far as how to do it that is no problem, as I did plenty of this type of work with an LCO i worked for before going out on my own. Ive done a few mulch jobs, but nothing this far gone. My hourly rate is $40, which I have already told her. Ill have a guy helping me, but hes family and i just pay him $10 an hour cash. My biggest question is how many hours to quote it. My thought is 3-4, but I could be way off. She wants black mulch which i get for $23/yard and charge $33/yard(price if you walk in off the street). I feel like 4 yards of mulch would be needed. As you can see from the pictures its very far gone and honestly if it was mine I would pull everything up and replant all new, but that's not what she wants to do. So help me out guys. Ive been on my own 3 years now and really gotten comfortable with what i'm doing, and what i'm offering. Thanks in advance.
