What is the easiest way people estimate the amount of mulch needed to do a job when using bulk mulch? I have always used eyeballing but that hasnt been working as good for when i give the customer an estimate and then it ends up being more than i anticipated. Also how much is everyone marking up mulch right now? Thank you for your help

Measure it out and get the square footage.

Enter the #s into this calculator and go from there.


As far as price goes I pay about $30.00 a yard and I charge another $50.00 to install. So the customer pays $80.00 per yard.
