    Red cedar mulch. There are 3 main places in Lansing and all are within $1 of each other.

    Anyone have any picures?

    I am surprised prices seem to be a little higher in your area or maybe they are just a little lower in my area :)

    Between the weather and people wanting dirt cheap work its been frustrating. How big is your big mulch job and what do you charge per yard installed?

    Around here, some guys are charging $100/yard for premium bark. I don't know how they get it. $65-$70/yard for premium bark seems to be the average rates in this area.

    D&R. I do a lot of mulch. My cost is also $30/yard for the cedar, and its 28/yard for dyed. I charge anywhere from $70-85/yard delivered and installed depending on the size of the job. For a 30 yard job I would personally charge $70-75/yard depending on what you think you can get.
