    wheelbarrow time is minimal, very minimal. nothing up or down hills, and the house is your average residential style house. not too many flower/plants/shrubs to work around either. straight away shovel, haul, dump, spread.......repeat

    Depends on what the mulch is, pine, hemlock, or blend. Any where from $60.00 - $75.00 per yard, delivered and spread.

    For five yards we normally get 350, and that is for dump and spread with minimal edging. For hard to do jobs, near plants 2.5 yards was around 240. Remember that edging is a lot of work and getting mulch in between bushes is hard. 1 yard 1 man 1 hr. 5 * 35 = 175 after expenses you should take in on this job.

    atleast 320.00. ANd thats if the dump truck can dump right at where the mulch is going to go. If you've gotta load it up and take it more than 20 ft add on extra money for transportation costs.
