    Figured out total mulch needed by measuring length x width x 3" came out to needing 21 yrds.
    now mulch around here costs me about 22.00 yrd. telling people 65.00 installed. so i am making about 43.00 per yrd of mulch.
    total job 1365.00 + 100.00 for edging beds comes to 1465.00

    Does this sound like an ok price for 21 yrds of mulch and bed edging?

    mulch price seems good edge price seems a little low i charge between .85-$1.00 per foot depending how bad it is also you should include a delivery charge with the mulch price around here it is $50.00 per load with 10 yards in a load. I get anything over 5 yards delivered easier than making multiple trips.

    Sounds about right. Where do you get your mulch? 22 is a little lest than i pay.
