    I think your prices are very,very low. For 25 yards of mulch,I would charge $1500.00.I get $60.00-75.00 per yard of soil depending on the customer and what i am doing with it.

    Sure, I'll give you a couple of jobs to do for me. You'll make me a fortune. Check your math, overhead, manhours. Your ridiculously low. :(

    $75.00-$100.00/yard is what I am charging to spread. That does include deep natural edge. If the cust. wants the old mulch taken up (they're are a few out there) then I add more. If there is a new bed to be made then I add more. My sugg. find you a base price and stick with it. Then evalueate the job...even think on it a day or so and then give the cust. a written estimate. If you measure correctly then you should come within a yard or so of the written estimate.
