Hello,
I have a customer that wants me to expand from doing their turf care to total management of their properties next season...They have multiple properties and a huge amount of mulched bed areas. The beds currently have pine nugget mulch. It is a bagged product here..I've asked them to consider a ground mulch for cost savings but they insist on the bag product. On 1 property they have 30,000sf. of beds to be mulched and its spread out over a large area with different terrain and access will be very labor intensive to even get the bags to each area..so we are talking roughly 185 yards of mulch at 2inches so thats roughly 1670 3cf BAGS !!! Is there an industry standard price for installing bagged mulch??? Thanks for anyones input and help here!!

Absurded,
How much are you needing to do this job?
I charge around 50-65 a yard to install.

Are you saying that you charge the same price to install bulk mulch as you do for breaking a yards worth of bagged mulch?
