    Can anyone tell me what a good $ per yard just to install mulch would be?

    add 20 bucks to the list price of the mulch. so if u buy it for 15, charge $35/yard, and that should cover you

    $50-$60 to just install it. You lost your profit margin buy not buying it whls. So you have to make it up by moving and spreading it

    So that $20 covers your gas and time to go get the mulch, deliver it, and spread it?

    What do you think? I'm charging a friend $200 to spread 12 yrds. The mulch was delivered by someone else.
