    not really sure what you're saying........

    Are you doing a job, or are you a homeowner having it hauled to your house?

    sounds like consumer prices. get a contractors pricelist.

    no, there is no profit in mulching jobs. we just do it to pass time.

    Charge $60 per yard and you'll make profit. This should cover delivery and installation (labor).
