Just wondering how much everyone pays for mulch...? I personally pay $22 a yard and think that is very high for someone in the trade to pay. And I do believe that it is far cheaper to buy it cheaper right across the bridge in NJ.

Think the last time I figured 7.50 per yard for hardwood mulch by the semi truck load. I have it hauled in and it is there when i need it. Yes it does carry some overhead with it though.

I'm in New Jersey and pay 21.00 per yard, retail is 25.00 per yard. I know of a couple places to get it for 10.00 a yard but I have and account with the nursery that right in my town so theres barley any travel time.

here in Ohio it's $25 for the public, $22.50 for landscapers, which I think is pathetic, for all the biz we give them.

Bulk mulch (various kinds)here in Texas is $14.50 to $28.00 per yd. Installed price is $34.00 per yd + delivery fee. Bagged mulch is $1.80 my cost and retails for $3.75 per 3cu ft bag.
If your rich then you get cypress mulch at a whopping $4.25 a bag retail with no discount for landscapers.

Triple ground Dark

$18 a yard for up to 50 yards

$16 a yard for 50+ yards.

Its usually cheaper in bulk, so it helps if you have the equipment and a place to store a big load fro the season. You can save a lot of money if you have the equipment to handle it through the season. (which not to many people do)

$10/yd, less if you spend big money with them over the year

Curious I have never gotten the semi-load of mulch before never had the space or dump, BUT I do now and am curious how long can your brown sit out before turning funny. I have heard a year I dont know I have the room but its not covered?

Hey Todd, where in VA can you get it for $10. I am on the NC VA Border and will probably be getting a tractor trailer load soon, so any good sources would be great. Thanks,

CC

What kind of mulch is that...referring to 25/yd?

I can get black dyed mulch for around 26. The double ground hardwood (plain ol' mulch) is ~14. Cedar is right around 30 but I find that fluctuates with the season. I'm getting it from a local Nursery.

I wouldn't buy bulk and store until 1000 yards or more.Equipment is expensive too!
At 300 yd per year I buy from local yards,on account,at 13 to 16 per yard
