Aound here shredded hardwood is going for $55/yard delivered and installed (cost ~$15/yard). Some guys are trying to get $75/yard others are charging $35.

If its in a back yard or hard to reach area you can always charge $45 per yard + an hourly rate, such as $45 per Yard plus $75 an hour.

all my labor is an average of $50per hour

$942 sounds good to me if you get it. if youre paying 32 per yrd your making roughly $85.63-$32=$53.63peryd.

Got a call today and measured off all the mulch spots. I came up with just over 5200 sq ft. So I estimated 32 yards. I could be off but can always load my trailer and take the extra home. Anyways my question is do any of you MI LCO's have pictures of a 32 yard mulch job? I keep thinking this sounds high but I know I measured right and 80% of the front yard is mulch. Any pictures would help.

I plan on charging 55 per yard. My cost is 29.50 per yard. I will be having this much delivered so what would this be in the ball park? I think my delivery charge will be $40 not sure if it will be higher do to the amount.

Feel free to rip my prices apart. Just keep in mind Im new at this. Thanks

What kind of mulch are you guys buying that is $30/yard? Around here even color enhanced is $22 -$26/yard depending on where you buy it.
