    I am starting my own business, and I am curious how you guys charge for doing barkmulch. Say a person wants you to put barkmulch around their house. Lets say you can get the mulch for $28 a yard. Do you just add a percentage to the mulch and then charge extra for the delivery, edging and installation. Or do you just charge a flat fee per yard of mulch?? and everything is included?? Can you guys give me some numbers so I know I am in the ballpark. Thanks for your time and your help...

    We charge $50.00 per yard includeds installation. Our cost on mulch approx. $15.00 for dark ceder, $14.00 for light ceder, $16.00 red ceder and $18.00 for hemlock. Buy bulk in bags or plain bulk. We get some of our mulch from Morse Bros in Maine! They will deliver a trailer truck right to you.
