    I buy it at 30 a yard and charge 50 to spread it. You can tell me all you want that I am way to low, but I get all the business that I can ask for. I also have a very low overhead which contributes swell.

    Does that include the cost of the yard of mulch or is that cost of mulch plus $85 to spread? I don't know how you are getting those prices. People look at us like we are crazy when we quote $60 a yard including the mulch. They can get illegals to do it for $40 a yard including mulch and trimming any shrubs that need trimmed. We have stopped quoting that way. Now we just quote an over all final price.

    $100 a yard.

    Got a job to do on Monday. 4 yards, $400. Should take me 2 hours tops.

    I hate mulch, though. HATE it.
