so he makes 28.65 yard @ 50 a yard
then take out gas for the truck.plus a little for insurance we will say the $ 8.65 it takes it down to $ 20.00 for 2 hours of labor ... a hour to go get it .and hour to spread it
he maken like 10.00 a hour ..
I charge ~$58/yd to spread or ~$87/yd to spread and edge. If I have a good customer I usually round it down a bit.
How does this sound? Only my second year in business.
With contractor prices, Earth 'n Wood charges $27/yd contractor for colored mulch and Mulch Makers charges ~$22/yd. Don't know about Mulch Makers but Earth 'n Wood always gives me 1 1/3 - 1 1/2 yd for every yd I buy.
