    Get a price for it delivered. Charge a Hour labor per yard.
    That is for nothing more than buying and spreading the mulch. You must consider the other issues.

    Add your cost plus 20% plus the labor charges. Should be around 60 to 80. If it is a yard or less then the charge is higher because I have one of my guys go get it.
