    Help with quoting a job of spreading 15 yds of mulch and 450 sq ft Bermuda sod. going and picking it up, unloading with a shovel and wheel barow by myself. Any ballpark figure?

    Spreading of the mulch depends on what you are paying for it. In my area we double the price of the mulch if we are hauling and spreading it. For sod I charge $1.00/roll to install it. This does include the cost of the sod or any ground prep. You will need 50 sq. yds. I also charge a $35 delivery fee for the sod.

    The mulch is 18.00 a yard. I will have to put sand down to level the ground first. The sod comes on pallets, 400 sq ft per pallet

    I get mulch for $15/yd. I sell it for $40/yd installed. As far as the sod...I have no idea, it also depends on the price of your sod.
