dirt/topsoil vs mulch pricing adjustment

I was curious how much is fill dirt and screened top soil in your area per yard and how much are you charging to install it per yard? I have a customer that wants the rear of their lawn extended and is going to take approximately 70 cubic yds of fill dirt to slope it the way they want it and the way it needs to be. I will be using a skidsteer. I would appreciate to see what the costs of these are in your area and how much you would charge to do it as well.

On mulch it costs$29 per yd and Charge$85 per yard installed for mulch. if that gives you an idea of pricing in my area.

thanks in advance guys

@ 70 yards I would be having an outside company truck the dirt in that would determine a lot of the price I would try to use as much clean fill as I could then add top soil on top to keep the price reasonable. But that sounds like a nice job good luck
