    I charge $55- $60/yard installed depending on type of mulch. I perfer triple shredded hardwood and I pay $10/yard wholesale. Does the customer live 60 miles away? Thats a long way to travel to only do 8-10 cubic yards of mulch, you may want to think about traveling that far. 99% of the time I also talk the customer into edging around the beds which I charge $1.00 per foot.

    First I would not haul the mulch that far I would find a place in the area to buy. Then I would charge between $65.00 to $90.00 depending on the terrain

    thanks for taking the time to respond guys. I live 60 miles from the city that is where all of the big money is at. I just started this business and some times you've got to go where the money is. I live in a small town pop. 1000 plp
