    I need to give a price for spreading 20 yds of dirt. I need to move it from the driveway to the backyard which is 30 to 40 yards away I will be using wheel barrows. Iam figuring $300 to buy the dirt and Iam not sure what to charge per yard to spread it.

    I charge $45-$50 per yard to install.

    If you can (or if you want to save some time) rent a Toro Dingo. I rented one last spring for $90/day to move 60 yards of topsoil on a job and it worked great! It didn't tear up the grass at all (as long as you are careful). I did the entire job in less than 1 day.
