I need a gardner what can apply a layer of mulch to my garden bed. Havent' decided to use newspaper or other plastic type of base yet. Any recommendation is welcome. Total garden bed area is roughly 106 square meters. Please provide quotation of how much mulch I need and your labour cost.

Giving a quote on the weeds is a slightly different topic. I need to know the type and quantity we are looking at controling to give you an acurate price. Also, how do you feel about the use of herbicides to get the weeds under control? This would probably be a faster and therefore cheaper option for you. Maybe you can send a photo through of the area and a close up of the weeds?
Johnny, I would not use any weed mat for the reasons listed above. Sugar cane mulch will not last as long. Prehaps 9 months. Bark will begin to loose its colour after 18 months and is usually changed over every couple of years. For SC Mulch including product, delivery and man hours you would be looking at $510 for the job.

And also how long will Sugar cane mulch last compare to other mulch types?
