    Customers are selling house so they want a quick landscape restoration. No weed barrier, just make it look nice.

    What needs to be done
    1. Clean mulch areas 2400 sf total
    2. Add 16 cu yards mulch at 2 inch depth
    3. haul away debris

    What is a general estimate to charge to clean/prep areas and lay down mulch per cu yard? I figure one hour to prep and put down 1 cu yard of mulch. Am I off.

    I would be at $890
    $16 X 2 = $320 for mulch
    $320 to install
    $250 to remove and haul away crap.

    I would be at $1,050
    $50 per yard x 16 = $800
    $250 for remove and haul away debri

    I charge $55 / yard for basic brown shredded and $70 / yard for the midnight shredded. For 16 yards, I would quote $880 for the mulch application and $200 for the cleanup.
