    So I went and gave a quote to a family 10 minutes from my home base
    on a mulch job. Some re-edging, very little weeds and some clean out.
    Only going to put down 2 inches of new mulch, because there is still a good base.
    And you guys would charge??

    I come up with 2800 so you're definitely in the ballpark.

    I'd be somewhere between $2800 and $3100 I think. That's 40 yards, give or take.
