    How long does it typically take a 2 man crew to install 1 yard of mulch?

    Just trying to figure out per yard what to charge?

    Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Should be able to do 4 yards an hour. 2 an hour minimum.

    We spread about 200 yds of mulch per year. Working out of a sidewalled trailer with bulk mulch, I expect a two man crew to move at least 3 yds per hour...if it's less,I'm forced to go Paul Tuttle on their a$$es.:usflag:
