    I charge $7.00 per bale installed. So the price for 100 would be $700.00.

    I charge $3.00 labor on top of what I pay for the straw. The final can change depending on the closest location That I can get the straw. This year my total price is $6.25 per bale. No one has complained yet.

    We pay $3.00 for bale and charge $6.75 to have it installed. We only spread straw for our regular customers or landscaping jobs. We do not make but 10-12% profit on pine straw.

    Here in eastern NC we are getting 7.00 a bale installed. We cant get our bales of straw as cheap as some of you 3.25 is the best we have been getting it for.

    $7 a bale? How many square feet does one bail cover? Never done pine straw.

    I think technically one bale of pinestraw is supposed to cover 100sq/ft or a 10x10 foot area. Of course, it depends on how lightly or heavy you spread it.
