    How much are 2 cubic foot bags running in your area? That size job you wouldn't really want to buy bulk. How many bamboo trees? The bed does it need to be edged out? Are you refreshing the mulch or are you laying down mulch for the first time?

    If the bed needs to be edged out I would probably charge between $175-200. But if the edging is ok, $150 sounds about right then.
