60 a yard is what I charge unless there are circumstances that I will bid higher. Circumstances would be. Small gate that requires using something other than large wheel barrow, Lots of flowers to mulch around, large back yard or length that I have to haul mulch from trailer to. I can do at least 2 yards of mulch in an hour and mulch only costs 17 a yard. I have a yard min. If I have a big install I will get help and pay 10 an hour. For instance I had 26 yards to do. I had one helper and 26 yards of mulch. Helpers pay for the day was 60 and mulch was 442. Total gross for job was 1560 - 502 for mulch and labor. My profit was 1058 for 6 hours of work. For me that was 176 an hour. Take out my everyday operating costs of 19.68 an hour, and that is 156.65 an hour profit. Now I know most people are going to say 19.68 an hour opperating costs for moving mulch with a wheel barrow. I arived at an average price per hour from last years total hours divided into my costs to operate machinery, truck ins and payment, fuel, insurance costs, advertising, maintenance and Im sure I left a few things out. Any ways cost of all this divided by hours = operating costs.
