Kevin,
The mulch I use most cost me $30/yd. I charge the customer $50/yd. which includes hauling it to the job site and spreading it. Good luck.

imograss,
Sounds like you are getting mulch from The Mulch Company.

18.00 to 23.00 cost for bulk mulch - If it's more than 3 yards, have it delivered. It should be free.

3 yards or less - 60.00 a yard
more than 3 yards - 50.00 a yard

I can get these same prices in bag mulch and will if it is right for the landscape. Using bag mulch is more cost efficient. Easier to throw and easier to clean up.

Don't know where Tim got this info. I don't know of a company that'll deliver a mere 3 yds w/out a delivery fee. Personally, You couldn't pay me to use bagged mulch -- and furthermore how is bagged mulch cheaper or for that matter "easier to throw"???

I guess I just don't understand his system.

thats correct jkelton, they just opened a satellite location right in the area i service. this place i accurate on the amount you recieve. if you ever got much mulch from the vernon st. location, you know you ask for five yds. you might get three, or you might get eight. it just depends on how they feel i guess.
