    $180-$225.

    Do you want to know what to charge for future reference? I charge $30/hr for landscape work.

    That's about where I'm at (most of the time about 25 though, because only a few of the places that I do are nicer places) (I'm very small and expanding) thank you!

    Yeah. It also depends on what state your from. The dude in NY may charge $50 an hour. The dude in Mississippi charging $30 is basically the same.

    Lowball/Kiddie city in this thread.

    Start learning to charge properly, please. I don't care if you're 13 or 50.

    $350 for the mulch. Next time dont let the customer buy the mulch for you. That is where you make your money.

    I charge 65 a yard in bulk to spread. I get the mulch for 20. If the customer pays for it, then there is no mark up for the mulch.
