mulching is simple and easy. i use bags whenever i can. less mess and easier to just take a bag and lay it down where you want it then cut it open and pull up the bag and it all falls out. using a load of mulch you are shoveling mulch which is harder work and takes 2-3 times as long.
bagged mulch does cost more but i still think it's cheaper for the customer overall. the only time it makes sense to use loads of mulch is if you have a crew of workers on a large job.
think about it.
even if you charge double for using bagged mulch instead of a truck load the savings in time (labor costs) would more than make up for the difference to the customer.
