    Just curious about how much the market will bear for spreading loam. The average in my area to spread a yard of mulch is about $75/yd. Mulch & labor, I trying to see if the same price for loam would be too cheap. I think $100 is more like it. Keep in mind that if i spread the loam then there's a 99% chance I'm going to get more work from it. I'm talking about a yard here or there to level out a yard or to repair winter damage. (plow,salt,dead patches)

    I charge $100 on average..........more if I have to wheelbarrow it up 8 steps, around a corner and over the hill to the back of the house behind the storage shed........maybe less if its say 40yds and a skid steer.
