My business has been growing rapidly in the last 2 years, my largest mulch job was a 180 yarder around 2 years ago. My question is this about a new job that I am about to bid on. I measure about 65,000 sq feet and this is a remulch from atleast 3 years ago. There are a few spots bare with almost no cover to some spots with 4 inchs remaining, I am planning to put down around 2 inchs on the 65,000 feet. Covering heavier on the thin spots and light on the thick areas. I have a tractor with a 1 yard mulch bucket. Also a ton dump truck, atv with 1 yard dump trailer, along with 2 good size mulch trailers for transfering around the property. There are 18 different mulch beds on the entrance road that im doing. They range in size from 1000sq feet to 20000sq ft. So Im going to be moving the mulch around a bit. Most all the areas I can get to either right off the side of the road or with the tractor or atv so no big wheelbarrow trips. I can get the mulch for 20 a yard and the mulch guy said he might could do a little better with that much mulch. Delivery included.maybe 15 ish? I have heard one local guy say he was getting it for 9 with large amounts. Im really wanting to get this job but will be bidding against 2 other companys, one of the guys I am trying to out bid owns the only mulch blower around this area. Im guessing his price is no lower than 45 a yard installed. I think with this size job and being able to move the mulch by machine rather quick I could come out between 40 and 45 a yd myself and still turn a decent profit. My total on mulch would be 8000 or less and 100 man hours. Any one done any jobs like this where you would be needing 1 inch in area and 3 in others? Have I over estimated with 400 yards? Would the guy with the blower be going lighter? Does a blower make the mulch spread farther? Better mulch mileage so to speak? Wonder if he would just rent me the blower?
