    What's a fair price to put out 4 yards of the red colored wood chips mulch around the parameter of this house and getting it for $25/yard to be delivered by my trailer in 1 or 2 loads 7 miles from the jobsite? Can back into his driveway and shovel into wheelbarrel to distribute. Thanks for suggestions.

    Some questions are better left unanswered...if you're not at the level to bid a mulch job (only math) then you may want to study your trade a tad, but here in Ohio mulch sells at $23 and is installed at $85 yd. Please refrain from posts that make you look inexperienced. This is not a "lawn care for dummies" site. If you want one of those try Gopher.com.

    I'd charge $360 for the job. an extra $100 if they want fabric, mainly because I hate using fabric, and it doesnt help any, so if im going to do it, im going to make it worth my while. I charge $25 extra per yard if I use fabric.

    BTW: you can fit all 4 yards in a 6ft pickup bed. I've made 5YD fit in mine before. Just build some sides.
