    $60.00-$70.00 a yard for me depends on the quality and how accessible the beds are to get to.

    ok, I was looking at 65 per yard myself. Just wanted to make sure I was in the right ballpark.

    estimate is about 150 square feet per yard at 1.5 to 2 inch depth.

    price depends on type of mulch (cost) and difficulty of install, but price starts at $55 / yard.

    we get ours delivered for $12 per yard- we sell it at $28 per yard- then add our man hr. rate. Most jobs are bid outright.
