I am adding some extra services to supplement fall/winter income. I am pricing an area for mulch which will require 3 yards of mulch, landscape fabric and 40 feet of eedging installed. What do you guys think of labor costs for this?

Thanks for your help.

they want to use the plastic edging with the loop in the top in a curved pattern to transition from the mulch to a pine straw area

grassblaster.

for mulch i would charge between 35-42 c/yd
pinestraw...6.00 to 7.50 bale (delivered/spread)
edging... C.O.M. * 20% and hourly labor to install.
fabric...C.O.M. * 30% plus staples and hourly labor to install.

fabric is a pain to do in my opinion, plus it degrades with time. If they are going with hardwood mulch, keep it at three inches and put a 0-0-7 PreM on the mulch (or a liquid preemergent) instead of the fabric (if bermuda is present, they will have to spot treat with Round Up periodically)

good luck.
