I have an opportinity to bid on four branches of a bank here in my town. They want mowing, trimming shrubs, and mulching. The mulching is what I am having a little trouble estimating. The mulch itself is selling for 25-30 dollars per CY. The beds and trees already have some mulch around them, so do you think 1 inch, 2 inches thick or what. I will have to get the mulch in my truck, transport in to each branch, then use the old wheelbarrow and shovel to distribute it to the beds and trees as I won't be able to drive on the lawn. I have figured how much mulch is needed, but how much time would be needed to spread it? I am working solo. I guess if I knew about how long it takes to spread a CY of mulch using the method I described above would help. Any ideas guys? Thanks.
