    Why do people look at me cross-eyed when I quote mulch prices? We get it for 18-35 per yard and add 25-35 for installation plus delivery. Sounds reasonable no? Either I'm dealing with amateurs or other landscapers are putting down 1" where I am putting down 2"? I'm talking about places that really need it, not a simple topdress. Seems like some of these people go 3 years with out mulch and want to cover 2000 sq feet for 400 bucks. Sure at 3/8 thick. Please. Tell me I'm not crazy.

    I've never had a problem with the mulch price, but they never want to pay to prep the beds, seem to think it is included.
