    Hi everyone
    Just wondering whats the going rate for putting down mulch.Do you figure a percentage for the mulch and then add labor or just double,triple etc the price of the mulch.I live in the Memphis area and guys here charge anywhere from 40.00 to 80.00 per yard.

    I try to get $50-60 per yard plus cost of mulch and delivery. For my regulars its $50, if the beds are grown up I charge more. But you really need to know your costs of doing business and what your market will bear to get a good answer.
