$9.50 a yard for triple cut root mulch.Up from $6.oo last year.Install at $75 a yrd. I try to steer customers away from dyed mulches since it doesnt decompose as well and is very dry,plus it doesnt look natural since its more of a wood chip from pallets.

I have been looking around to get the best price on mulch and have found that on average its about 28-38 dollars a yard. My favorite kind is hemlock mulch, but the supply yard wants 44 a yard for that!

I'm trying to fuiger out where I can go to get it cheaper, but have not yet found anywhere. Anyone from my area that can give me some suggestions on where to go?

I charge what most distributors would charge for delivery anywhere from $50-$100 depending on distance. If I pick up the mulch (anythign less than 5 yards) or it is delivered the price is the same, but I canmake more pickign up the small loads.

Then I pay $12 a yard for double tub ground and mark that up to $15 per yard to the customer. I would pay $20-$25 for most other mulch and $40 for Hemlock. Those prices also would get marked up 25%.

Then to install I have figured a safe bet is 1 yard per man hour to install and spread using wheelbarrows and rakes. If you have better equipment to move the mulch around great but thats ll we have. You can very easily get 1.5 yards per man hour done on easy small properties. SO Using that formula (normal hourly rate is $45 per man hour) I would charge $30-$45 just to install and spread. If the property is large I would charge more.

SO using my double tub ground

My cost $12 per yard marked up to $15 per yard to customer
Delivery $50-100 depending on location
Installation $30-$45 to install and spread depending on property size and beds

Geez, 12 per yard? What kind of places are you getting it from? I don't know where else to go besides the local landscape supply yards. I would get a large amount, but I have no where to store it.

Find a local tree service that processes it.
