    I am bidding a residential for the following

    -redefine 510 lin. feet of edges
    -25 yds mulch (beds are already clean)

    I plan to bid $1500 for the mulch w/install.

    Not sure about the edges though.

    Thats alot of mulch. How many hours do you think putting mulch out will be? By yourself?

    I bid $1500 for the job, and the customer agreed. I will have two employees on the job with me. I think we can edge the beds, clean-up, and install the mulch in 6 hours.

    I just did an estimate for 22 yards with some edging, but beds are fairly clean for $2600., you are def. way to low

    + cost of mulch or mulch included in the $1500 bid? What did you pay per yard for the mulch?
