How much is a yard of brown mulch?
Besides, is it cheaper to buy mulch in bulk or bags?
McCarty says one of the questions she gets asked the most is whether it's cheaper to buy mulch by the bag rather than in bulk. "The answer is no. Most bags are 2 cubic feet in size," she says. Customers can save a considerable amount of money by purchasing mulch by the yard, but a mulch delivery fee might apply.
Also, how many square feet does a yard of mulch cover at 2 inches deep? If applied in a 4-inch layer, 1 cubic yard covers 81 square feet. Scattered at a depth of 3 inches, a cubic yard of mulch covers 108 square feet, and a 2-inch layer covers 135 square feet.
In respect to this, what does 1 cubic yard of mulch look like?
Mulch comes in bags, usually containing 2 or 3 cubic feet, or by the truckload, measured in cubic yards. (A cubic yard is 27 cubic feet.) One cubic foot will cover about 4 square feet 3 inches deep; 1 cubic yard will cover about 110 square feet at that depth.
How much should I charge for mulching?
Landscapers charge either by the hour or by the cubic yard for mulch applications. Installations by cubic yard will range between $25 and $50. In addition to this rate, a fee of $70 may be charged for mulch delivery. For an hourly rate, a landscaper may charge $55 to $75 per hour for a two-man crew.
