    Can anyone give me an idea of how they would bid mulching & pruning 44 trees and bushes. The mulch I would use is bagged hardwood which is going to run me 2.10 per bag. Each bag is 2 cubic feet and I will use 2 bags per tree/bush. The pruning is going to be light pruning as needed, mainly pruning dead, damaged or touching limbs. How would you bid this?

    I would try getting your mulch at a cheaper price by buying it in bulk.
