Spot on. I install regular shredded hardwood mulch with edging @100.00 per yard installed. Dyed with edging @115.00 per yard installed. The only time I may go slightly below that quote is if theres something... accessability, huge beds, etc... that make it an easy install. These are the necessary prices to generate a decent profit in my area.
