    What would you guys charge to put down 50 bags that have already been delivered. Its pretty difficult due to many shurbs I have to be careful about not getting the mulch to close to. Thanks.

    Do you have to edge the beds, clean them out, etc.?? Or only spread the mulch...

    Roughly 4 yards x your hourly rate. $200-$240 is a good range.

    Who paid for the mulch? You or homeowner?

    the beds are edged and weeds are pulled so all I'm doing is putting it down. The homeowner paid for it and had it delivered.

    ABout $150.00 to $175.00, probably a 4-5 hour job.

    If these are 3 cubic foot bags then it's about 5.5 yards. Hard to say without seeing the job site, maybe $300-ish.

    True.....I based my quote off of 2CF bag........I don't think I have ever seen a 3 CF bag in Florida. But based on 3 CF bags $300 is a fair price.

    $55.00 per yard installed if I buy it. Double grind here costs me $27.00/ yard to pick up.

    If they buy it and have it delivered, I charge $28 per yard.
