We charge $40/yd installed.

If we charged $40/yard installed we'd be :walking:

$75/yard installed is a good start for 2 people and then add on each additional man hour and their hourly rate per yard.

^ It all depends on how much you get your mulch for. After reading this site there is a huge difference one state to another. I get much for $12 yard...so I am making $28 yard to install and it takes what, about 35-45 mins for me to move it myself.

What about hauling costs and using your equiupment?At that mulch price you
better be seeing at LEAST $55 per yard.My market bears about $65 but
location matters in the mulch business.And I charge hourly for bed prep!
