I have a customer who wants a bed cut around the perimeter of their home. They want fabric down and either mulch or stone installed depending on the final price. No plants per their request. 220 LF of edging. The customer has requested plastic edging. There are 2 elevation changes as the bed curves around two small rock retaining walls. The rest of it is flat and is graded away from the foundation pretty well already. I've figured an averege width of 4 feet for the bed. I would be renting a sod cutter and bed edger for this job. I'm a little stumped on how much rock I'd need in yardage. Not sure how much the necessary material would vary as opposed to mulch. I'd be using 1-22" stone. I know my material costs and equipment rental costs, but a little stumped at how long each portion would take to perform timewise(cutting sod, cutting edge, installing edging, laying fabric). I also have the time down on the mulch, but since stone is heavier, I don't think anyone's moving a heaping wheelbarrow of it at once. I'm wondering how long it takes you guys to lay down a yard of stone, provided the bed is close. In this case it would be dumped on the driveway, and the circumference of the actual house is around 40x60 or so. So the trips would not be too long. I'd appreciate any guesstimates on time figures. I've got numbers written down and they seem pretty logical, but I do want to CMA on this one. I will have a crew of 3 or 4 working on this. This of course provided that the customer accepts my proposal, which I really believe he will not once given the price.
