    I got offered a nice job if i want it, and it seems like easy money, but need help with a quote. Customer will need 800 sq ft of dyed black mulch laid and a pattern edged out around some pine trees. Looks easy enough to edge pattern out and lay mulch, but wonder if you could all give me a magic number where i should be in at. Some things to consider would be that i would need to have the mulch delivered to customers residence and cost would be about $18-22/yd
    Thanks guys

    one guy with a wheelbarrow can easily spread 2+ cu. yards of mulch in an hour....

    800sq. ft @ 3" depth is about 7.4 cubic yards.....you can probably get by with 7 yards...

    figure what you want to earn per hour and charge accordingly....don't forget to include clean up time, delivery charges, etc......
