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.

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