    Figure out how much it is costing you in hour per laborer, and then add on how much you want to make off of that.

    Pretty simple.

    depends on the site layout: obstacles, pitch of the site, accessibility, etc...

    I charge my labor rate by the hour, by the man. I do not work this way. I provide the mulch and labor.

    i agree with that, I always supply the mulch, it just ends up being more cost effective for them, and I get more of a profit.
