    That sounds about right. Are you renting a bed edger? Have you gotten a price for the mulch and delivery? I know the place I order mulch from charges a delivery fee if it is less than a truckload (15yds). On my last project, I actually ordered a little more than I actually needed and just put it a little thicker because it was cheaper. For instance, 13 yds @ $24/yd is $312 + $55 delivery = $367. 15 yds @ $24/yd + free delivery = $360. Even if you have a little left over, you'd save a few dollars and have some to start your next project.

    sounds like your on the right track. The edger will save you tons of time over hand tools and leave a better finished edge.

    I charge $70/yd delivered and installed, so $910 for 13 yds. Edging is $.50 per foot on old beds. Add some $$ for weeding, maybe 2 hrs labor.
