Is this mulching price about right?

    I have not turned in this bid yet so let me know what you would charge.
    Ok, I have to mulch around a restraunt, and I went to take measurements so I would be able to tell about how much mulch I would need. I can up with 18 cubic yards and I can buy a cubic yard for $25. I figured that it shouldn't take any longer than 4 hours with 3 people working. Note: this is strickly just mulching, little if any edging. So what would you charge for this?

    I would charge anywhere from 55-75 per cu. yard installed. Around here its more in the range of 45-55 per cu yard, but not sure the costs up by you. I wouldn't charge an hourly rate, just give a set price for the per yard which includes the install (labor) esp if thats all your doing, no prep, no cleaning out blah blah, just putting down the mulch. and yeah, + tax. I think Grandview is pretty close to what you should charge em.

    the only thing I would add is if I was making multiple trips to get the mulch

    Around here we charge $75.00 per yard installed. It there is cleanup and bed-prep involved that is extra. So for the mulch install charge $1350.
