    This what I got...3000 sq ft garden that needs 28 yard of mulch at 3 inches deep. I have a place that can drop it off the mulch for 65.oo a truck load and 22.50 a yard. As of right now it looks like it might just be me and only me working that 28 yards. I still need to get the bed ready it is about 80% clean... just some weed and trash here and there. I have never put down that many yards before so should I go with a hour price due to me working by myself or should I give a price by yard?? The few jobs I have done have been no more then 2-3 yards and i did those by the hour at 45.00 an hour. Im trying to not to give my work away but at the same time I am trying to make good money for a solo oper. Any information will help thanks guys

    I usually charge 60-80 a yard installed. Depends on the prep work. 28 yards is quite a lot for one person. I'd get some help.
