25 feet you should get alot more out of it than that. You should get on average 75-80 sq' per bail. i usually pay 2.00 per bail but have got it down to 1.50 before. I would charge at least $4 over your cost per bail. Most laborers will put out from 12-15 bails per hour in beds that have alot of shrubs and once you consider rolling your edges and clean up. All of that being said I try selling my customers mulch it last longer won't blow away in heavy winds and it gives back nutrients to the soil.
