    Good twice shredded hardwood.

    $35/yard my cost from dealer.

    $45-$65/yard delivered.

    $85- $120 a yard installed. (sometimes labor is a big factor in final bill)


    Doing enough mulch now to have a semi-load brought in next year to drop initial cost.

    Here in the DFW area I shoot for $75 per yard for regular hardwood mulch. Dyed mulch and other mulches are more. I can get $90 per yard for black dyed mulch.

    What is everyone charging additionally for laying landscape fabric down?

    Hey bud, i charge about 70 dollars per yard. I dont use landscape fabric at all. Its a pain in the butt. If you do want to put it down, i would charge the cost+ a % for the product. As for labor, it all really depends how fast you can get it out before it blows away.

    Thanks Chris. I have to lay it down, per the bid specs. Not my choice.

    just pin it down as you role it out, works great in windy areas, they should have fabric pins were you buy it.
