Are the above prices labor only, or do they include the price of the mulch.

What if you have the buy the mulch in bags since there is no wheelbarrow access to the backyard (easily), but you can carry the bags from the curb to the bed to be mulched alot easier...

I need less than 2 cubic yards, so about 27 bags or a little less.. like 24 bags of 2 cubic feet...

Basic hardwood mulch runs me $25/yard. I always charge $60/yard with labor and all.

I usually charge $80 per yard delivered and installed. For greater than 10 yards I will drop to $60 per yard if it's easy access. And will also do $60 per yard for existing regular customers.

My price does not include edging or pruning; however, if there is an existing edge that doesn't need to be completely re-done then we will go over it just so our job looks need when we finish.

We always re edge a bed and will prune when needed. We try to get around $100/yd. If there isn't a crisp edge I think that the job looks like a home owner did it.

I may not be reading something right so I need help. Are you guys charging the mulch and labor together? Or is the mulch lets say $25/yard and labor $60/yard for a total of $85/yard.

We charge $75.00 a yard for the first 5, and then $60.00 a yard thereafter and that includes the mulch and labor.

Okay now I have a question.What are you folks paying for your mulch wholesale?Maybe this will clear things up.My area is between 10 to 15 per yard.

I pay anywhere from $24 to $32 per yard depending on what type of mulch I get.
