WHAT IS A GOOD PRICE PER YARD FOR MULCH TO BE INSTALLED AND DELIVERED?
i can tell you a few prices here:
$25/yd pine bark
thats just bulk price. the local nursery gets $21.00 delivery charge on top of that. i myself charge around $25 a yd to edge and mulch/yd and then tack on a fee for hauling it.
I only deal with double-shredded hardwood and dyed wood-waste.
--Double-shredded hardwood, per yard, delivered & installed $45
--Dyed wood-waste, per yard, delivered & installed $55
If I use the blower truck take $5 per yard off.
That's my prices, based on my profit margin.
Steve, you said you have a blower truck? What brand and model did you purchase and at what price. I have been looking into one of these machines, and am trying to see if they would make my business more profitable. Are they effective in smal areas, even around plants.
i charge $40 per yard to deliver and install.
Man, I wouldnt last in any of these areas. I charge 50-60 per yd depending on the amount I haul. This includes delivery. Colored mulch runs 60-75 per yd.
Cedar mulch is the most popular and recommended here and I charge min of 50 per yard to recap existing. It can go upto 65.00 depending on the job. I usually haul smaller loads myself (6 yards or less). I dont do new installs but I know there is $$ in it.
