    When yall say that you charge, say $7.00, per bale of pine straw, does this include the price of the bale and the installation? OR is $7.00 just the price of the labor to spread each bale? To make the qustion clearer: Say you buy the pine straw for $3 a bale, do you tack $7 to that $3 for a total of $10 per bale, or does $7 cover the bale and spreading? Thanks for any help

    $3 + $7 = $10 per bale.

    I charge $4.25 per bale for the straw. (cost $3.25) I charge $10.00 (includes delivery)to install in a bed with alot of shrubs. If your installing in just wide open area or you go up into many bales (30+) you can adjust your labor price a bit. $7 pb to install alot of bales would be about right.

    For $7 per bale I would charge a $50-$75 delivery fee.
