    I have been requested to add 10 yards of mulch for a customer. The cost of mulch is $538 for 10 yards delivered. It will take about 8 hours to clean the beds and lay the new mulch. I ran the numbers and came up with $480 for labor, and $135 for the cleaning of the beds. My total price would be $1200. Does this seem right? I don't want to under bid or over bid this could be a good account for me as we are working on lawn care and snow removal proposals for them as well. Please let me know what you think any help would be appreciated. Thanks Mike. :confused:

    Its 500 for cypress mulch 38 for delivery. This is my first mulch job and there is a lot of clean up needed in the beds. So if I did at 60 a yard the I would be @ 735 inlcuding bed clean up.
