    A customer wanted 5900 square feet of mulch removed and river rock put in. About 4,000 to 5,000 sq feet of the area needed new weedmat as well.

    I bid the job at $77/ton for the rock, (River rock costs 29 bucks delivered) 1200 for the mulch removal, and some other expenses.

    Final bid was $10,115. Was this too high?

    My first guess was about $7000
