    How much would you charge to deliver and lay down 17 yards of cedar mulch? A much needed cleanup of leaves is needed before the mulch is laid as well. The mulch cost $578 alone ($34/yard.)

    Looks good, I usually like to at least double my materials.

    sounds about right 1200...never done a job that big seeing that i have no way of getting that much mulch but that sounds good....

    I would be more in the $1500 area just for the mulch. Might be less, just depending on how easy the spreading is.

    Mulch is hot, dirty, tiring work...and everyone seems to want it done. So make sure you make money on each job. I turn boatloads of mulch jobs away every spring.
