"Man if you can get five yards of mulch (with the plastic bags and pallet) in the bed of your truck, I'd like to see the size of your truck. "
It is a little tall so I throw the top four or so layers down. I'm sure bulk is cheaper, but not much. I pay $1.49 for a 2 cu. yd bag. I think the bag mulch spreads so much faster as well. This of course is my opinion, because I haven't spread bulk in about 5 years. Hauled 10 yards on my 14' x6', but I put a couple of sheets of plywood down the sides. Comes out to a little over $20 bucks.
