i would NEVER attempt a job that required 75+ yards. if i can't haul it in my truck and only make 1 or 2 trips chances are i'm not gonna do the job.

good for you. but i'm not you. so i can't spread 75 yards in 2 hours. i really don't see how anyone could but you say you can. i don't like spreading mulch so the less i spread the better.

I should rephrase my previous reply.... i will wet down the mulch for my house and my friends/neighbors. This is when i use cedar mulch, and i will do cedar every 2 years. It gets nice and wet and i pack it down, (so i can fit more in the beds) that way next year i can re-rake the beds and it has plenty of mulch and looks good as new. It is a pain in the ass so i only do this on friends/family or really small jobs for regular clients.

I use chopsticks and teaspoons shoveled out of coffee cups. I found this to be the most effective method possible.
