    im doing a flowedbed cleanup/mulch job for a lady, and i'm charging her by the hour for the cleanup, trimming shrubs, etc. i told her $35-40 a yard for the mulch delivered and installed, which she said is fine, but my question is, when you are charging by the hour and have a preset price for the mulch, do you keep charging by the hour while youre mulching, since the labor is already in the $35-40?

    you should be charging alot more than that anyway imo
    id keep my hourly plus charge that price for the mulch that would be about right for delivered mulch anyway

    the reason i charge that is that i can get it for about $10 a yard sometimes, if it;s more thanthat i might charge more. how much do you get in your area for mulch delivered/installed?
