I told him 45 a yard delivered and 75 a yard layed he said he has a guy that will buy the mulch, deliver it and install it all for 500$, I said I hope that works out good bye .



IS MY PRICE WAY OFF??
or is he not understanding that, that guys 500$ quote was just for just laying it?
That is crazy let him have it!!!
