There will be many who claim to say that they will purchase, deliver, spread and cleanup debris by charging a set amount per cubic foot of mulch. I call them ????

The hidden agenda is to charge for delivery, a percentage above the mulch cost for mark up, and then for the labor in man or crew hours to install the mulch. " There is no set rate." Then figure in the trouble factor.

I have seen posts of LCO's claiming to charge 85.00 a yd. installed for mulch. Be it they may have given deductions for bulk jobs, but it is what it is...........Labor intensive.

It is no wonder people are having to adjust their rates to cover the hidden obstacles such as this job.
You have to make a living and a profit or you will be just another landscape company doing work for publicity. Either way you lose. Or do you?
