    I was wondering what the going rate for mulching flower beds is. I am 16 and take in about $30 an hour when I am out mowing. Do you guys estimate the # of hours and give a price for the whole job or do u do it by the hour? Either way i was curious what I should be expecting per hour if i wanted to get into mulching flower beds. Thanks

    I price flower beds by the job NOT by the hour.

    I figured most guys price by the job i was wondering if a guy works 4 hours putting beds in what he would make for those 3 hours.

    I just figure up the cost of all the materials used (dirt , flowers ,fertilizers) and triple it. So if you got 20$ in it I charge 60$ to install and then some depending on the degree of difficulty.
