$17-22 per yard

Charge whatever I can get to make money and get the job.

Some are $40 per yard, some are over $100 per yard.

Plus I REALLY sell the digging of the old mulch out vs. just slinging on top...

There's a lot of money in charging for old mulch removal....

We install for $100.00 a yard.

Now that is some nice markup! I thought I was expensive @$80/yd installed for colored mulch, but $100 is awesome!

I was taught that "if you aren't a little embarassed when you give them your quote; youre too low!"l/
