    It's not always about price. It's about service and value. $100/yd for the good stuff here in CO.

    im in cincinnati ohio and i dont see how you only charge 45 a yard. im anywhere from 85-110 a yard depending on how much you have to do by hand.

    i get anywere from 65-105 a yard and im right in the same area as you are lewislawn, you need to raise your prices. 45per yard installed- 20(product)=25-8(taxes)=17-10(direct employee wages)=7-3.50(indirect employee costs)= 3.50 for about a half hour of work. not counting any overhead witch could put you into the red.
