Michindi - I charge $63 a yard for product and installation - TO DO BULK. My trailer can carry 7 cu yards per load, so I could do the job you are talking about (4.5) yards with ONE TRIP from mulch store to job. I doubt if you could get 60 bags in one load, so you would have to charge MORE to make the same money due to all your extra drive time.

LEt the customer do it. Maybe he will appreciate how much work is involved in laying mulch! Next time he needs it he will be ready to pay what it is worth to have an LCO put it down.
