    I know you guys hate discussing prices and such, and they all differ with the parts of the country but I have a job Monday of just installing 15 cubic yards of mulch, not delivering it. I have no idea how to price it since it will be on-site already (they bought it) Ive read between 65..and upwards of 100 per yard, but I think that's with them delivering it as well. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    My mulch rates are at 1.5x cost + labor (usual 40/ yard) less if can unload directly from dump to area. More if we have to wheel barrel it far or have to pitch fork it from the ground + delivery. We bid a18 yard job just likes yours at 50/ yard + dt and were close to the other guys.

    For estimates, I usually figure 1 - 1.5 hrs labor per yard depending on how many plants u have to mulch around and how far u have to wheelbarrow it
