    Mulch costs me $25 per yard. I need 30 yards for the job...so my materials cost is $750. There is about 3 hours of edging and bed prep. What do you charge for mulch and labor?

    The I will tell you what some clown said they will do it for for one of my clients.

    In MD,
    $60/hr x3 man hrs.= $180
    30yards @ $75/yd =$2250
    Total =around $2430, plus consider layout(hills, ect.), and if you have to haul anything away.

    I'm in SE Washington state. This is what my bid would look like:
    Mulch-$60/yd=$1800
    3 Hrs x $35=$105

    Total Cost=$1905


    If it were a job in my area I could be much cheaper though because I get my mulch for $15/yd.
