    do you have to deliver the mulch or is it already at their place?

    the rule is 1 yard of mulch per person per hour. take your hourly rate and times it by 12. goodluck.

    $35 tops if she's buying. We get $50 but supply the mulch.

    Well you say $50.00 if you are supplying the mulch, well mulch can range greatly in price. I just did a job that they insisted in using $5.09 a bag mulch.

    I laid 96 cu ft for about $220.00 did i get screwed?

    by the way this is my fist post here...awesome website!
