    I have a client who wants to put down 38 ft x 7 ft about one inch of rock around the flower beds, need to know how much to put down thanks and what I should charge them.

    Figure your total square footage and multiply it by .003125 to get 1" of coverage. This will give you how many cubic yards you need. Make sure that 1" is enough to cover the weed barrier. As far as price figure your time from the landscape yard to the installation place and your time putting it in. Add the cost of material to that.

    Hope that helps
