    11 yds red mulch .... 32.00/yd

    I also told them we would turn all exhisting mulch in areas where mulch is being applied. Beds are mainly around a 3000 sq ft house. Lot is small - around 1-4 acre. Material will be dumped in driveway and wheel'd to areas. I approximated 8 man hours.

    What would you have charged her?

    we have a premium and a cheaper alternative the dye isn't that great. edging is good up here for us.

    What I wanna know is at 60 a yard how much of that is money in your pocket after all expeses.

    Red, Black and Brown cost me $19.00/yd. Charge $70.00/yd installed here (includes pre-emerge and weeding). We are $10.00 more than others but you have to develop a reputation for good service. We are covered up with mulching right now.

    I havent seen the landscape, but I have a hard time beleiving you need 11 yards of mulch. That will fill my 18 foot landscape trailer up twice. Just sounds like alot to me. But I would charge 65 yrd installed and about 100 for edging And cleanup. Its only about 70 wheelbarrows full. Good Luck!

    Have a hard time believing? I put down 26 yards of mulch in the same neighborhood. I wasnt looking for you to tell me weather you believe me or not, just your price.

    Jeesh, some people...
