So opinions on pricing for a mulching job please! 20 year old home that probably has not been mulched in 10. Some beds had literally NO mulch in them left. The beds that had OLD mulch flakes left in them were so polluted with dead brush and weeds you couldn't see ANY mulch. So seeing this made me 100% sure these people were not interested in a pristine lawn which right away threw me into a conclusion they wanted a shotty job "just done". I will not put my name on a toss and dash over years of weeds and rubagge. The people were in their 60's. So anywho we measured all beds which was a lot. The total square footage of beds was 3,400. These beds were so overgrown with massive pine trees and those huge 5'x5' low lying shrubs of some sort. They wanted no plants removed or pruned which both are needed to an extreme. Sorry I am not a landscaper. So literally we guesstimated the actual square footage for mulch would be 2000 sq. feet. Estimate was as follows: Mulch supplies @ cost: $30x14=$420 Delivery of mulch= $65 Weeding & old brush debri removal of 3400 sq ft of hell= $200 (4 hrs @$50 prob wouldve taken longer also!) Labor for mulching= $500 (maybe high? but I figured it would make up for the extra clean out) Grand Total= $1,185.00 My husband and I are the owners and we would have done the clean up together and my husband would have my step dad for 4-5 hrs for the mulching which we would have paid him $15/hr.
