    How do you charge to do any other work?

    By the hour?

    By the job?

    I charge by the yard for mulch, if that is the only job i am doing for client much more profitable.

    I can lay on average 6 yards an hour.............

    These would be my rates following the above info-

    $45 an hour * 1/2 to 3/4 hr charge for pickup and delivery, 2hrs to lay mulch= $115.00
    or
    Flat rate of $47.00 per yard * 12x$47= $564-your cost $276= $288

    Which would you rather make? $115 or $288

    I am sure its obvious, but i charge by the yard, haha.

      How does it effect your pricing if the customer has you do other work as well?

      Also if you are charging a flat rate per mulch yard, does that include delivery? When do you find it's better to deliver it yourself versus have the supplier deliver it?
