My first mulch job is about 10 yards of black dyed, my cost $25/yard. Easy install cause I can pull trailer up next to beds. I'm charging $1100. Is this a good price? I can fit 3 yards in my trailer at a time and am solo. It took me about 2 hours to do the first trailer load today.

do a search on mulch prices there many many threads on this....but we would charge $100/yard for edging weeding and install....also if you cant get all ten at once it will probably be cheaper and faster for you just to get it delivered

What is a good standard install price figuring $25/yard cost? Also, what is the upcharge per yard if it needs to be wheelbarrowed in?

my mulch costs me $23/yd. and we get $70/yd installed. thats just install. if theres weeding and all that it can be $100-130/yd.

I can get about $70-80 a yard installed, plus edging and such.
