What do you charge per yard to install mulch? And what do you pay for it?
depends on rather I have it blown in or manually put it. Also how far it has to be moved from pile to bed. If blown in 35$ per yd if installed by hand 45 to 50 depending. It really depends on a ton of different things..
I pay between 11.50 to 12.50 depending on what part of town i'm in.
$75 yd installed, buy for $13-18yd
Get thread, I was wondering the same thing myself. But I ask yall this, How is the best way to figure up how much mulch to purchase, and typically how deep to put it??
Measure the beds with a measuring wheel.I use this formula:
Lenth X Width X Depth of Mulch
Divided By 324
Equals yards of mulch needed
I charge 60 yard installed. I pay 10 yard for double or tripple hardwood.
Just a note: Length and Width are in feet; Depth is in inches.
Another note: Please check out this website for information regarding overmulching: http://www.psu.edu/ur/NEWS/news/overmulching2.html
I see alot of people who think more mulch is better - I know this was not the topic of discussion, but I thought I would bring it up.
$65/yd installed, pay $10 per yd for triple shredded hardwood.
so whats the proper way to measure and charge? does anyone a clear cut way to price'em out?
I get $80 per cubic yard. I pay anywhere from $22 to $28. This site will help you determine how much mulch you need.
length x width divided by 100 for a 2-3 " layer
that gives you your cubic yards
