    It depends on how much your buying mulch for, what your operating costs are and how much time the job will take you.

    I know what I would charge just seeing what other prices are out there in this area, prices are not the same across the US and I just moved into this area. I was looking for someone who was in this general area. If you don't want to help don't bother to comment.

    I'm sorry but to me it sounds like what the gold pro said you don't know how to price, and now u want somebody from the area to give there price so you can under cut it. so what would you charge

    You shouldnt be asking people what they charge. If you dont know what you should charge in order to make a profit then you have a problem

    I whip weeds for free, Its cheaper than going to the anger managment classes the judge ordered me to go to.

    If you are in Geneva, the sky's the limit from what I hear services go for up in the Chicago land area.
