    Hey guys I wanted to know if anyone can help me to estimate a mulch job.

    The job calls for 40 yards of mulch

    Before I'm putting the mulch down I'm going to weed wack all of the weeds and put down a weed barrier.

    Also this job is in North Jersey


    Thanks

    Flat rate 50-70 dollars per yard. That's gettin the materials and prep work and laying it. That is a pretty common price in my area. Charge more if you have to trim shrubs or hedges too.

    Double the price of what your paying for the mulch. If you are buying the mulch for $30 a yard, charge them $60.
