I needed a few quick answers and figured this is the place. Anyway, customer has approximatelly 200 sq. ft. around their house that they would like mulched. Problem is, I have not done this before. I would only assume that the area needs to be dug out partially with an edge and then drop in the mulch. What will prohibit weed growth, how long will the mulch last and what would be the correct charge for a one-man operation. Thanks.
