In your opinion, is 2 yards per hour on the low or high side for a two man crew with wheelbarrows moving 50 feet?

I've got to price 30 yards, spread only.

Thanks

Whether or not you have some plantings to work around can make all the difference in the time required. Seems right on the money if you don't have a bunch of plants to work around though

Today, 2 people did 3 yards in 70 minutes, moving it 100' and up a 2' retaining wall, but it wasnt around many plants. So 3 per hour for a 2 man crew is a good estimate.
