5 minutes away $20 per yard and 20 minutes away $18 per yard. It really comes down to where the job is and the first place will haul for $35 if less than 5 miles.

I know I can get it cheaper by the yard but my customers keep asking for the $5/bag color safe stuff that stays black for a year from lowes/hd.

I pay $20 a yard for double shredded brown and $25 a yard for double shredded black mulch. I used to drive to a place about 25 mins away that sold brown for $18 and black for $20 a yard but with diesel being as expensive as it is now I just buy local.

We used to get 20 yards of free mulch from our local garden center if you placed and order of supplies in their open house from $5,000 to $10,000 now for some reason they changed it to top soil :cry::cry::cry:

Wow, you guys have it cheap. I priced a mulch job a few weeks ago and lost the bid due to the price of the mulch. I called two yards one right by the client and one right by my home. Both were about the same 28-32 range depending what you wanted. I can't remember the exact cost for the different types. I though it was expensive also. I quoted her $500 to put down almost 7 yards. She said no way. Her poor flowerbeds are in such bad shape. I mow her yard and it makes me look bad because she does not want to have them done.

500 for 7 yards is in line for where i am from at least. $80/yard and mulch costs me 17.75 for double hardwood and 18.75 for tripple if bought in bulk with a landscapers discount which all on here should be using. paying anything over 24 a yard is ludicrus.

why do you pay tax? just pass it onto the customer. you should be tax exempt.

yes the customer pays for it. and to be honest i don't pay for mulch my customer do at the tune of 60 a yard to 70. and last time i checked to be tax exempt you had to be non profit. and hell I'm not doing it for fun.

meaning you should not be paying sales tax at the mulch supplier. just collect tax like everything else from the customer.

you should not pay sales tax on items that you re-sell.....you need to get set up with the state sales tax office in your area...you will collect the sales tax from your clients and send to the state....

$12 a yard for painted, double hammered black or brown in 80 yard loads. Most companies here use natural brown mulch with no dye and it looks like hell, or they use the coal dust dyed black that is messy and ugly. I get mine delivered 2 loads at a time, Add delivery and it's usually $18 a yard delivered for 120 yards.
