    I worked out of Newnan Peacchtree City a few years aGO WE CHARGED 5.50-6.00 DEPENDS ON CUSTOMER. a GOOD LABORER will spread from 15-25 bail per hour depending on how thick the shribs are. Its is also a goo idea to chech how far your bails are going Ive seen them cover 75-115' so don't lose money cause you are getting bigger bails.

    I pay $3.49 per bale after taxes and charge from $7.00-$8.00 per bale to lay it. I try to at least double the price of the bale. That price includes the price of the bale so I'm ony making $3.50-$4.50 per bale to lay it. If it's in a really rich part of town you might get $10.00 per bale.
