When quoting mulch beds with natural edges, do you...

1. Add the charge for refreshing the bed edges in the price for the mulch?

2. Add a separate charge for prepping the beds? If so, do you charge per foot? Per job?

We typically include bed edging only when installing new mulch or pine straw, now if customers only wants the beds edged but no mulch on pine straw installation we charge by the foot but provide the customer a total for the job.

One fee for delivery and spreading

Another for bed prep ie: weeding trimming

Another for edging per foot and disposal.

I usually offer a price for installing the mulch ONLY and then a separate option for prepping the beds as well before the install.

We charge by the yard on mulch and install.
Plus a delivery charge(flat rate)
Then we always include a price for flower bed prep and weeding, trimming shrubs, and edge defining. This is typically by the hour or by the job.

When I quote for mulching exisiting beds I quote for delivery, install of mulch, bed edging by the foot and bed prep. I break everything down on my quotes so customer sees everything. You can “lump” evetything into the quote but I find the customers like to see what exactly they are paying for. I find the more detailed you can be with your quotes the less likely customers will question why the price is what it is. If you just say 1000$ to mulch your beds they might think it’s too high but if everything is broken down they will see where all the money is going to.

Hope this helps!

For mulching in beds with natural edges, we charge separate to refresh the edges. So, with the edging we can also add cleanup of the bed. Same goes for new landscaping fabric. But, with charging we (depending on the circumstances) measure the edge or bed or take an estimate size of the bed and charge based on our expenses and labor hours. Then come up with a price to charge.

The price depends on what the customer wants. I usually only charge for installation and shipping. But if there are special wishes, then it is better to warn in advance.
