    hey Jc1. how much are you calculating for mulch for the flowers beds? I have been doing all my estimates using 3" I have been high on alot of estimates it looks like everybody else is putting down 1.5" .

    I just use the phrase 'apply pre emergent weed control to beds'.

    I usually try to mention to the customer that the pre emergent will reduce weeds but not prevent all weeds.

    I agree. I try to avoid using brand names. It may help tame the DIY person
