    It's kinda hard to answer the original question when the OP isn't helping us out!

    Well first of all like others have said why is he getting the mulch? That’s a flag in its self because MOST people hire us to do it because they don’t want to and it’s an inconvenience to them.

    But for s&gs here’s how I would do it but apparently my prices are low by others here but also they are different areas so different prices. Also this example would be very little clean up for install.

    Example
    $75 a yard installed
    $25 labor rate
    $30ish a yard wholesale
    1-productive guy can do about two yards an hour

    So 10y/2=5 hours labor

    $75x10=750
    $25x5=$125
    Total=850 for the job.

    Profit after cost
    Cost $30 a yard x 10=$300
    Labor 1 guy @ $15=$75
    Total direct cost $375

    Profit $475 for the job.

    Hope this helps!
