    I would like to see what the going rate is for installation of 3" river rocks. These beds are currently covered in really old mulch that must also be removed. This is for 10 stores with corporate owners. Thanks

    How much do you buy it per ton? Tripple that for labor. Sounds good to me

    we pay $12/ton charge $65/ton installed. Removal of the mulch would be extra as well would laying landscape fabric down.

    for 3" river rock? We would pay 125 a ton minimum. Doubt you are paying 12 a ton.

    if you dont know how to come up with your own prices to match what your company (or lack there of) needs to charge in order to make a decent profit (or beer money) then you dont need to be doing that kind of work yet.

    How the heck do you guys know what people pay for materials in their area? Those responses are as stupid as his question. I pay $31.50 a ton for 3"-5" riverrock.
