spreading topsoil

I need to give a price for spreading 20 yds of dirt. I need to move it from the driveway to the backyard which is 30 to 40 yards away I will be using wheel barrows. Iam figuring $300 to buy the dirt and Iam not sure what to charge per yard to spread it.



Thanks
dave

If you can (or if you want to save some time) rent a Toro Dingo. I rented one last spring for $90/day to move 60 yards of topsoil on a job and it worked great! It didn't tear up the grass at all (as long as you are careful). I did the entire job in less than 1 day.
