    I hate mulching, therefore its been about 2 years since i did any. Anyway, i kinda had to do a job yesterday for one of my customers. It was 3 yards, with about 185 ft. of edging existing beds. Access to to the beds was close and easy. I charged $300. Is this about right.

    2 and a half hours. $54 for the mulch, and yes very local. Like i said i havent mulched in a long time, i used to have a set price per yard, and per foot for edging, so i kinda adjusted my price since i last did it. I figured 50 cents a foot for edging, and $70/yard for the mulch. Grand total=$302.50
