    Hi,

    How should I charge to pile mulch around beds , 14 yards of it.
    I am going to pile it up around the beds , the homeowner is going to spread it. It will be me and 1 other guy. I am estimating it will take about 8 man hours How much should I charge?

    So he bought it and wants you to move it? 50 an hr with a minimum too.

    Depending on what type of mulch your buying you should charge around $800 if your not spreading it. You should be able to knock the job out in 6 hours if you have 2 guys and two wheelbarrows.

    depending on how hard/fast you and your helper works you can each do 2 yards an hour if not slightly more since you dont have to spread it. $490. 4 hours sounds about right. Other parts of the country people seem to get way more per yard

    Whoops mis read the post, I get 80 dollars a yard. However 29 of that is for the mulch so really it would be 51 a yard if the mulch is already at the house or business. So I would be at 714
