You are right the other guy is apparently misinformed.

I charge $55 per yard installed for dyed mulch, if they want it cleaned out that's extra, if they want it edged, that's extra, if they want preen, that's extra. We have spread 65 yards of mulch in one day at 7 different homes. We only do mulch on the weekends when I can get all of the former "landscapers from College" to come out and play in mulch with me. They have the experience to do the work, and you walk away with a beautiful manicured landscape.

Our company started focusing on lawn care, now we make more money spreading mulch in the spring then all year cutting grass.

One tip I have for you, get to know your suppliers, pick one and really get to know him/her. A little goes a long way with the guys loading your trucks, bring them a water when your loading up, they'll appreciate it and maybe give you a little extra mulch.
