    I charge $75.00 per cu yard, delivered and spread. That price is based on the most expensive mulch. If a customer wants a lower grade of mulch, I make more per yard.

    $50-$60 per yard delivered and spread. Minimum charge even if it's 1/2 yard is $50.

    Depends on cost of mulch & what your markup should be. where it has to be moved from & too. just make sure that there can be profit made on it

    I am doing a yard this week roughly two yards I told the customer 50 dollars to deliver and spread, I will be getting the mulch for 10 dollars a yard, Then I am charging 50 dollars to pull weeds. It is not infested with weeds should take 1 hour.:blush: So it totally up to your labor cost. Remember you set the price and bid the job high you just might get what you ask for.
