well then find out your price per yard and then come up with a price. we normally charge anywhere from $45-80 a yard just depending the area. the price we pay for mulch is from $12 a yard to $22.

i always tell people its the cost of materials that is expensive. i pay about $25 a yard but they charge about $40 to consumers. i get $85/yard installed, no edging, mild weeding
