Doesn't matter what you are doing, be it mulch installation, mowing, etc. etc. Everyone has their own price! Last week we installed 150 yards of mulch in 2 days with a 3 man crew. How do I make money spreading mulch? Well, I own a bark blower, so my guys move about 4 to 5 times as much material with a blower compared to hand. Did we make a profit with wheel barrows? I'm starting to think I didn't.
