Hello, if any one can help me get a better idea to estimate mulching It would really be appreciated. I'm located in western New York. Lets say my labor rate is 35hr and I buy mulch for $29.00 yard. Figuring there is 6 yards includes tree rings and s shape beds. What is the average time to apply. Do I include removing old mulch with price. I really need a better idea to estimate because I seem to be losing bids.
