    Customer wants all beds edged total of 367 linear feet. Then has 1200 sq ft. to cover with shredded cypress mulch about 3" deep. Then needs two small azalea plants installed, four 5 gallon fruit trees installed, transplant a lorapetalum and a crape myrtle. Then create a circle around an oak tree preferably 10 ft radius with large southern azaleas. How many yards of mulch would i need and how much per yard installed. i have heard from 60-115 per yard installed. I figured .25 cents per linear foot for bed edging. How much do you charge just for installing plants. I can figure out the cost of plants. Thank you so much. Just recieved my plant setters license and this is my first job. Then i have another small one. Any help is much appreciated. And what type of bed edger do you reccomend brown, turfco, or.....
