    I want to get $5K for installing 30 yards of Limestone and taking out the current mulch. Is that being greedy or in line? I am thinking it will take me 2 days.

    Does that include the materials? I know nothing about installing stone, but it would help answer the question.

    What equipment are you going to use? How far do you have to move material from the staging area? How far do you have to go to dispose of the old? How much is the new rock per yard? Using weed fabric under the new rock? (Hope so) Do you have to cut fabric around existing plants? (time consuming) Lotta variables to consider. Without knowing all of those, can't help you much.

    Sounds to me like you are to cheap. You removing 30 yards of mulch and then installing 30 yards of rock? I wouldn't do it for 5 grand sounds to me like about 7200.00
