    Why do they want mulch, topped with landscape fabric topped with Rock?

    Measure every-thing and then go to your wholesale supplier for costs.

    What you charge for your labour depends on so many things. Search this site for more information

    What do you charge to install a yard of soil/mulch? How many yards needs to be removed? Are you taking the soil to the dump or what? You definitely want to charge more to remove vs install. No one can just give you a price to charge. There are way too many variables. Some people charge more/less than others. Charge by the sq ft? Charge by the yard! That will give you the fastest easiest answer.
