    I am bidding on a yard and the homeowner wants all her beds mulched. i have to clean out some pinestraw then edge all the beds. she has about 1,800 sq. ft. of beds. it will take about 6 yds. of mulch at $30 a yd. i am giving her a price of $500. too high or too low?

    I think you're right about in the 'average'.... $82/yard or so.... it all depends on the 'clean up' factor.... weeds, old straw, edging.... how much time are you going to invest in "prep time"????
