    Im 18 years old, and have am entering my second year of having a small lawn business. I have a few clients, and one is trying to get me to mulch their yard, however i have no idea what to charge. The man said he would pay for the mulch and have it delivered, so i am trying to figure out how much is fair to charge for a yard of mulch spread. The perimeter of this odd shaped piece of land he wants mulched is 550ft. He also wants some rocks spread, which will also be provided, should i charge the same rate per yard on those. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated, I am clueless at this point.

    If you want 2" thick, take 550 devided by 150. I think you will need abou 3.6 yards the way i charge for mulch, is price of mulch +delivery+laber.
    My price will be $250.
