    We charge per yard. Around here the prices are all over the board. Any where from $50.00 to $75.00 per yard. Price depends on the size (smaller jobs = more per yrd.), pre-emergence and/or edging included.
    When I submit a bid, I give one price that includes mulch, installation, and pre-emergence application. I give another price for bed edging. I do this because if I charge a flat rate for mulching that includes edging I would lose my butt on jobs with a lot of edging.
