    Mansfield. I get pinebark for $18. This will be my third year at this rate. No complaints thus far. Got the rate basis on LawnSite. $75/yd includes everything soup-to-nuts.

    I add $5.00 to the price per yard for mulch and then I double that for the install. So if I pay 17 a yard for some black root mulch I charge 22 for the mulch and 22 per yard for the install. Oh if I have to have it delivered the customer pays for that also. It works for me.

    $65 per yard includes delivery, bed edging, application of SnapShot, install, and clean-up. I usually get mulch for around $12 per yard.

    Same as Battags!! I can't believe guys would do it for $18 a yard, thats crazy, cheapest I can get it for is $18 unless I buy from a wholesaler at 65 yds per shot.

    Reading this I would have to say that edging , dethatching and debris cleanup are an additional charge to your spring cleanup?

    What are you saying? Do you include those in the price?

    Thats what I am asking...For $22 above his mulch costs I would hope not.

    Even if I didn't have to edge the beds my pricing would be higher than that.

    That's a good thing. I am sick of hearing customers saying they can get mulch for like $18-$22 a yard. I am charging roughly $60 and that is for delivery and install only no prep work! :waving:
