Bulk Mulch Supplier in Jersey

I was wondering if anyone knows a bulk mulch supplier that will deliver in the Jersey area? I'm thinking about setting up a bin for mulch at our yard so we don't have to go to the nursery every morning and wait and deal with all that. Just looking for a contact if anyone has one I'd realy appreciate it.

Why don't you just find a local trucking company to pick some up in bulk for you and dump it in your yard? I know of some guys that might deliver to you but of course its for a price.

You can try nature's choice. They have locations all over NJ so delivery might not be too high.

Rich,
My friend owns a recycling company in South Plainfield and they make mulch. They have three tub grinders and one is portable. The minimum is usually 25 yards. Is this what you are looking for???

I'm pretty much looking for a wholesale supplier that supplies the nurseries and stuff. I'd like to just kinda cut out the middle man (the nursery). Mostly becasue if I have it right at the shop in the morning we can save tons of time and I had a big problem last year with the nursery not being able to keep up with supply. I'd start a job in the morning and by the afternoon the would be out and I couldn't finish. I had days where we went through 40+ yards a day and I just need to make it run smoother this year. Plus if I can get it cheaper than what I'm paying at the nursery that would be nice too. Thanks for all the info guys.

I have friends that get a trailer load (80 - 90 yards at a time) of double ground brown. Runs them about 6 or 7 bucks a yard I think delivered. If you want, email me at rspronck@aol.com or a private mesage and I can get the specifics.

From NJ I know there are a lot. SJAP (South Jersey Agricultural Products), Banfe (in Barrington NJ), Mimlich (Mount Laurel area). There are also a lot from PA including Frey Bros mulch, Kuhn's mulch. Also, check w/ your current supplier... you may see their supplier dropping off a load and just copy down the info from their truck.
