This Will All Be Delivered To The Property By Myself In My Truck And Trailer, Of Course This Will Take Multiple Trips Back And Forth To The Dump Site As Well As The Delivery..

    Grab your heart. Are you ready? At least 4K

    $65 per yard (new) x 40= $2600
    $30 per yard (old) x 40= $1200
    for a total of $3800
    Now add in disposal fees for 40 yards of mulch. That is 2 tri axle dump trucks full of debris, and add in delivery for the new mulch and it will bring you over 4 thousand dollars.

    Only thing is, are the mulch beds that full that the old mulch needs to be taken out? In my 8 years of landscaping I have only once taken out mulch.

    Yes the beds are that full and I think your quote is on the low side, I do a yard of mulch for 100.00 delivered and installed with little weed control and edging. I appreciate the info but its a little to low for me. Thanks The Cutting Edge
