    How much should I charge to weed and lay 26 yards of mulch?. I buy my mulch at 22 dollars a yard. This is my first season in business.

    depending on the mulch quality and cost then the retail cost of mulch plus delivery plus 26 man hours.

    Also add the price to weed the beds which should be figured in man hours @ your hourly rate.

    Seems like you will make a big pay day if you price accordingly

    That is a decent sized job. Be nice if you had two other people to help.

    How close to the job can you dump the mulch? Got two wheel Borrows?

    I would figure the better part of the whole day for 3 guys.
