What should I charge to do mulch? Say I'm going to put out 3 scoops of mulch, how much should that be?

Never heard of a unit of measurement called a scoop. Mulch is usually figured in cubic yards.

Picking up the mulch (3yards), delivering the mulch, putting it down and spreading the mulch and all you make is 60. Waste of time... Your making pennies.

That would be double ground hardwood, No bed prep.

It's about a 3 dollar difference between regular and dyed.

Died mulch sucks and is usually ground up C & D waste...I refuse to use it. I use only premium mulches...around $85 to $100/yard installed including light prep (weeding & edging).
