    Ok, so this lady called me up the other day to prep, re-edge and mulch all her bed areas. She is not one of my clients and currently she has a guy who does her lawn for the past 3 years at 60.00 per month!!!

    anyway. I measured out a total of 1,045 sq.ft. Around 6.5cu.yds.
    I figured I would charge around 60 - 75 per yard installed & delievered. But does that include cleaing out the exsisting stuff? She wants about an inch to an inch an half removed from whats there so its not so built up high, as well as the edging re-defined. Would I just charge an hourly rate for this as well? I am a bit lost as to what to charge here and any advice as to what you guys do, would be greatly apreciated!

    remove 1 inch of old mulch aint that hard, I would charge an extra $20 per yard. So for you it'll be 80-95 per yard.
