When you say brown, are we talking painted crap chips, or real brown, say..... aged pine/ceday/spruce bark? 25/yard seems like a lot for painted chips, IMO. We are paying 25/yard contractor price for Hemlock, Cedar, or REAL aged black, not painted.

Most of the price increase in mulch can be attributed to mills sawing less due to the economy over the last year. Therefore, there is less mulch and thus the price goes up. It's that supply and demand thingy.

Mulch Pricing

For those of you that use the painted crap there are alternatives. Lots of "top spray" coloring solutions available on the internet.

We can get rough hardwood mulch for around $15/yd directly from a mill in this area.

High quality Hardwood mulch, contractors price is 30- 35 dollars a yard here. I think it's outrageous.

At some point I want to order a load directly from the supplier in order to cut out the middle man.

I have not experienced any price increases down here.

$18 for standard brown. Good mulch I use it a lot.

$29 for black, red, or any other dyed mulch of good quality.
