I an charging 48"/yrd for natural and $60 / yrd for colored
that includes some bed prep like cleaning out the old edge to hold the new mulch
shaping new beds is extra.

remember a yard of mulch should cover 108 square feet at 3 inches deep or 81 sq ft at 4 in.

Dag gum!

I need to raise my mulch prices.

I've been charging $45 for 10 yds and under. $40 for 10 yds and above.

I only hand install 10 yds and under anything above 10 yards I have blown in.

mulch pricing

You can only get what your area will pay, but from the look of things, your area will easily accept 55-75/ yard. However, if you think a nice job will get you more work in the area, sometimes it is worth making a little less.

We've been charging $84/cubic yard this spring, which includes weed cleanout and edging. I haven't seen a bed yet that didn't need some kind of maintenance. Never give a customer a per-yard price. Just give them the cost of the total job.

I only give the total price but I base that on $50-60 per yard installed, weeding and edging are extra

Get mulch at cost of $18.00 yd, installed I charge $50.00. No complaints.
Even had one complex pay for 54yds delivered themselves. I rented a bobcat, charged the same rate and had job done in 6 hrs, 4 laborers and 1 bobcat operator. $950.00 profit.
