I got a call for 5 yards of mulch to put down (no edging required,no hills, not far from driveway ect). I pay 18.02 per yard is $ 55.00 per yard a good price or am I under cutting myself??

I'd charge @$25 per yard for the mulch and $50 per yard to spread. Comes out to 75 per yard = $375. make sure there is not extensive weeding to do.

I don't feel that is too low or high. You can slam 1.5 to 2 yrds an hour depending on how spread out the veg is in the beds. so u will be out of there in 3 hours tops and made 60 an hour. thats not bad in my book.
Here i get the red stuff for 21.50 and i charge 75 per for 3yds and under, and 60 a yd over that and if it is 30yds or over i give a break.

$55 sounds reasonable to me. Around here it averages $55-$75 / yard.

I am charging $56 a yard installed here this year but I am only paying $11 for the mulch. Keep in mind your drive time to pick up the mulch should also be included in your estimate.. so your really not making what you think you are per hour. I think I would at least charge $63-$65 per yard installed if I were you. I also won't touch anything under 5 yards unless there is a hefty delivery fee added in.

$55/yd here installed. It has been that price for the last 2 years, and I am thinking about going up. I know that $55 won't hold much longer.
