    I charge enough to cover my expenses, overhead and make a profit.

    Thats what you should do too.

    We always figured it two ways then took an average so as not to soak the customer.

    One way is two have the labor built in (as someone mentioned here) but it's an equation that you can start off with at your desk or truck only.

    Then hopefully when you actually list everything by price (the list you show the customer) it should come out pretty close; The price of a yard of mulch; the price for labor' the price of delivery and so on. The first equation doesn't work if you're adding plant material. That's figured seperately of course.
