    The price is a little high, but not far off. I'm just a little concerned about your last statement (highlighted in red). I don't think you know your true operating cost? That $10/hr employee should be close to $13 (counting tax and wc) and what about your fixed expense etc.? You are doing what a lot of guys do and only see the dollar sign.

    You might check into what their delivery fee's are at your supplier. The mulch yards can deliver 7 or so yards at $15 a trip here.

    $50-$60/yard here.
    costs are $22./yd for 2X shred hardwood.
    $25 one time delivery fee no matter how much you buy.

    that means it's still $25.00 if he has to make 4 trips to deliver 70 yards.
