    $17.50 A yard. We paid a $1000.00 for 69 yards which made it 14.50 a yard.
    We install for $100.00 a yard.

    $18 a yard, $70 - $75 per yard installed.
     
  6. $17-22 per yard

    Charge whatever I can get to make money and get the job.

    Some are $40 per yard, some are over $100 per yard.

    Plus I REALLY sell the digging of the old mulch out vs. just slinging on top...

    There's a lot of money in charging for old mulch removal....

    Now that is some nice markup! I thought I was expensive @$80/yd installed for colored mulch, but $100 is awesome!

    I was taught that "if you aren't a little embarassed when you give them your quote; youre too low!"l/
