    Which is goofy because its such easy money and every dope who mows already has a truck.

    $75-$90/yard depending on terrain.

    $40 done deal! When do you need me to send a blower truck?

    I'm always curious on these threads about mulch. Regardless of what your price is does this include edging the beds, cleaning the beds, and then mulching?

    Or are you basically showing up with your mulch and spreading it?

    I only mulch my regular customers who request it. The edges are usually fine or they have some sort of paver block, patio, sidewalk, etc as an edge already. I basically just show up and dump n' spread. There are no weeds this time of year.

    If they see a weed they can spray it. That's my policy.

    Most every job I've ever done with mulch is in conjunction with bush trimming, edging, clean up, etc.... so I've rarely encountered a job where I've shown up with mulch and just spread it and left. I could never justify to myself some per yard cost with such a variance in job sizes, difficulties, etc.... But looking at some mulch only jobs I've been in the $100+/yard range if I took the bill and divided it by the yards used.

    To each his own though.
