I am a new member. I do landscape and lawn care work. I have an opportunity to buy a tractor-trailor load of mulch, double ground. A tractor-trailor load would be about 60-80 yards for $400.00 delivered to my yard. Do any of you guys think that this is a good deal. Any help would be appreciated.

PS Once the mulch is on my yard, I can load it with a bobcat or a tractor. So loading it is not a problem.

Is this cyprus mulch? Can you use it all before it turns grey? The price is VERY good, you are getting it for 5-7$/yard.

No, it's not cypress mulch, it is hardwood. I can already use two loads of it on my contract, so I think I should be able to use it before it turns grey. At the local mulch yard where I usually buy my materials, I am paying about $14.00 per yard now.

Not to mention the additional savings of not sending someone to yard to pick up materials.

Yeah if you can use it, it sounds like a heck of a deal.

sounds like a good deal to me, last year I paid $15 a yard delivered.
