Do you have anymore information. What is access like? Do you have to wheel barrow this materal across 200yards of parking lot or will you be dumping right next to the areas to be filled. Is there any bed prep involved? Any thing else you can add.

How long do you think it will take you to put down one yard? Multiple this by your hourly rate and then by the amount of material. Dont forget to include delivery charges and any other mark-ups and material costs.

There is one here in North Carolina.

http://www.fieldstonecenter.com/prod-ls.php

Would that help you? There must be a bunch in your state too.

On your bid.

What kind of a markup do you want to charge on the materials?

Quote:
and weed barrier,
How long will it take to prep the area and lay down the weed barrier?

Quote:
and 6" steel edging will be going down
How many feet of edging and how long do you estimate this will take?
