Try to use more appropriate wording. That sounds like a derogatory comment.
I myself am half Hispanic.
Thank you
get over it... i meant what I said and I said what I meant. The MEXICANS... not brazilians, hatians, guatemalans, or south americans.... MEXICANS... not americans, germans, french, or italians... MEXICANS ride around here in my locale selling bales of pinestraw for $3/bale... could there be other races that do it... sure... but here... primarily.... MEXICANS... thanks.... back on topic... you get what you pay for!!!

dude, get over yourself. i am half MEXICAN too and i don't take offense to that he was talking about a race of people. now if he would a said wet-backs, he still woulda have been talking about the same race, that would have been derogatory, but i still would have not taken offense. i know what you are saying about the mexicans. they tear up the market here too. but i have been getting a lot of customers due to the fact that a white boy is knocking on their door and can speak english. vince

Well if you are talking about the average $2 red mulch bags (2cu ft) then that is pretty good price. because double the purchase price for delivery installation is normal. and yes... VOLUME

I wouldn't use pine needles for anything...except azaleas. Even then the breakdown rate would not be of much use before next season...Any thoughts?

And if a finicky customer insists that you pick the sticks out of it you're going to be there awhile.
