We had a blower there. We had one site that took over 150 yards of mulch that we did in a day lol

We just put down 48 yds. Brown dyed just prior to 18 inches of snow being dumped on us. 95% of it went down easy. The other 5% was frozen clps that had to be chopped up with digging shovels.

The key to mulching when solo when it is a big project is to start farthest away from you and work your way to the trailer or dump spot.
Thats the key for everyone.

We're hoping to get mulch down mid April here in Toronto. Used a slinger truck last year for the first time for 20 yards. It was great, just point and shoot. lol.
Curious as to how much to charge based on per yard installed. I can get a yard of most types of mulch loose for $40-$50.

I pay $28 for black, I usually charge about 75.

1-2 yards 95
3-4 yards 85
5-8 yards 75
9-12 -70
13-15- 67
16+ -60

That's done progressively too. So if someone gets 9 yards
2 @ 95
2@85
4@75
1@ 70
Total 730.

I does sometimes come in lower for example a really easy spread.

That "I does sometimes" was a total typo, my bad. Read: "it does"
