    you need to give more details.... "dig 3 new beds" what do you mean, edge them out or remove the existing grass,etc....

    my pricing to spread mulch is: 1.5x's cost of materials + man hours to spread.

    If my cost was 100 I charge 150.
    If it takes me 3 hours to spread. I charge another 150.

    So 200 profit.

    10 yards around here is $250.

    I would charge $600 installed.
