    All depends on the conditions. I usually charge around $50 a yard, plus labor to clean existing beds/ edge beds/ spread it.

    We start $81 a yard, and try to get $101.25 if we can. I am leaning more towards 101 the way gas prices are going.

    Crazy thing, I remember about 4 years ago I was charging $45 per cubic yard with just a $75 clean-up fee. Boy, amazing that I even made money, but guess then my overhead was no where near what it is now. I am going to test the water this year and try to flirt with $100 plus per yard and see how high I can go. We have been on fire this year with Mulch installs, so I am not afraid to trial this. Whats the most someone has gotten for a cubic yard of mulch?
