I was only 10 yards off....

Wholesale price for red, black and brown is $15 a yard died delivered. double ground is $12 yard delivered.

Been dealing with the same place for 9 years now, and they just started dieing mulch this year.

Thanks for the help!

Comes out to 109.6 so round to 110 yards

I can't seem to find good mulch for $15.00 wholesale, especially delivered. I sell/lay around 500 yards a year and it would be nice to cut costs to $15.00 a yard. Where is this mulch coming from? Is it of good quality or just ground up pallets?

109.63 without settling.

117.3 if you consider 7% settling.
