    Triple shredded mulch is bought at $20.00 per scoop. (2 c.yds) It will need to be unloaded and leveled/installed. I don't have a dump truck so the 14ft. trailer is all I can haul it with. Thanks for your help...

    So you are buying mulch for ten dollars a yard?
    Colored or natural?
    How much will you be installing?

    I don't charge by the yard spread. The way I chrge is material and labor. I pay 21.00 a yard and sell for 35.00 a yard and then figure labor out at 30.00 a man hour.

    so if we have 15 yards to do with 3 guys and figure a day thats 720.00 in labor and 525.00 in mulch for a total of 1245.00 thats how I price because everyjob is different and I don't believe in having a standard price when there's different variables on every job.
