    Sounds a little high to me but there are a lot of factors to determine in. We get $55 per yard installed here. What all are you doing... just laying the mulch? How much does the mulch cost, are you also edging?

    if you edge that sounds right. We don't include edging in our price. Also, we are only paying $10 per yard.

    So you are charging $90/cy for hardwood, and the same $90/cy for cedar, cypress, dyed, etc? Or did I read that wrong?

    For double processed hardwood, we usually charge $55/cy installed, bed prep NOT included (edging, weeding...). That is added on to the quote because not all installs require edging or weeding. I don't think you can put a standard rate on that type of work, it varies too much IMO. Like saying all yards $25.
