Top Dressing Compost Install Pricing Help

Hello All,

I am conflicting pricing on how much to install a compost top dressing for.

Around here we price mulch for $100.00 / Yard for install, delivery and purchase.

I wanted to price compost the same because at the end of the day, we are still moving all this material.

I have a client who has 2,000 Sqft and we will need to add 0.5" of compost around, which is about 3 Yards of Material.

Material Cost @32.00 / Yard + Delivery ($30.00): $126.00
3 Yards @ $100.00 Each Yard = $300.00
Total: $426.00

Is this too much to be charging?
