I've got a question to toss around in here. What do you all use for a time figure for placing bark mulch? I'm not looking for dollars, we all have our own hourly rate. I just want to compare what we use for a time factor when bidding to place a cu/yd of mulch. No removal of old, no edging, nothing but moving a yard of material from the truck, or a pile in the driveway to its resting place under/around shrubs, plants, trees, etc. I find that I'm coming in at right around .8 man hours to move/place it on an average site where you can plan on wheeling it around the house in a big wheelbarrow. How does that shape up with the rest of you?
