    120 an hour for a three man crew seems like a fair price if your cost are in line. that's about where we are for three men also.

    A yard of double shred hardwood here runs about $35ish and i charge about $50 to install as long as it's a ready site. Things that might change as far as price would be weed pulling and how much wheelbarrowing i have to do to get it to the beds..

    We do quite a few mulch jobs for existing customers every year. We pay approx. $30 per yard for the mulch and charge $75 per yard to put it out. Bed edging is extra ($1 per linear foot, using a Brown Bed Edger).

    Even though your charging $120 per hour. Do you charge that per man hour or $120 across the board no matter how many men on that 1 job? I've raised my price up to $75 an hour per man hour.
