Any help is greatly appreciated. I would like to include the price i pay for the mulch in the total price for the job. Any guidelines ya’ll have for pricing this thanks.”

Chuck responded to this question by saying “Figure out your square footage x depth (I use 4 inches) to get cubic feet. Then convert to cubic yards
It’s cheaper by the yard than by the bag. & I’d just double the material cost for your 1st job, maybe add a little more & see how you do timewise. Adjust accordingly for job #2. Mulch is quick, easy & alot lighter than rocks!”
