I primarily do handyman type work here in Northern Ohio. I had a customer approach me about installing mulch beds around there home and was wondering if someone here could help me figuring out labor costs, or give me some idea of what other folks are charging? To start I will need to remove existing sod, edge 142' with an average width of 2' .. So it will be about a 300 +/- sq ft area. I'm figuring about 3 yards of top soil and 2-3 yards of mulch. The topsoil is $30/yd and the mulch is $34/yd .. Any input would be very much appreciated!
