    Hello

    I was just wondering how much you guys would charge for putting down 100 bails of pinestraw. I am able to get it for 2.85 a bail.

    Thanks for your help

    I usually charge 3.00 per bale over what it cost me to buy.

    I get the bales for 2.85. I have to pick them up so I mark them at 3.85 wich is what the home owner can get them for. I charge 1.50 per bale to install. We have a local company that does nothing but pine straw. Fifty bales and up his crews will put it down for 4.00 a bale. Guess it all depends where you are at.

    I buy directly from the pine straw guy so I get them for two bucks each.
