    double the price you paid for the mulch for your gas and profit. $60.00 a man hour at min. double the price on all material including edging.......pulling weeds cost you zero in gas and I would do it for 60 bucks an hour...

    5 yds of mulch installed = 325.00
    pathway cut = 45.00
    Hauling debris = 75.00

    total job = 445.00
