I go per yard. Whats your cost for mulch? Including delivery.

I normally charge cost of materials with mark up and delivery fee. Not sure the prices in your area but I would say $35-50 a yard for install. If your using a loader you could bid lower end but if its all manpower I would go on the high side.

How long are you estimating it will take you to install? Will you be going with 1 yard of mulch per hour?

This is the best post on the forum about pricing mulch jobs (http://www.gopherforum.com/showthread.php?t=13905).

Once you estimate the time to install you can multiply that by your hourly rate.
