Just wondering, but why are some of you guys using bagged mulched instead of bulk? For me, bulk is cheaper for my clients and a lot easier to move plus then I get a contractors on bulk!

For smaller jobs it saves time and money in the long run. no clean-up, no delivery, no shoveling. Anything over 3 yards and I buy bulk

You got a blower for that right?

We had one place i worked at that took over 200. They brought the blower just for it.

It had a 50 ft retaining wall we had to climb down a ladder 25 ft and blow the first half in lol

I am using bags for this job because I am doing it myself. I gave it a lot of thought and I decided that I would rather use the bags. Where I am doing the job it is actually easier for me to use them rather than a wheelbarrow. I also am not losing anything by going with the bags through the greenhouse I buy my products off of.

I laid down 30 yards solo last week by hand. Have another 9 tomorrow and 5 on Friday. I'll be glad when it's done!

Here's a photo album on our FB page. I need to update some photos in there this year.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...5107642&type=3

And then through this site, we've got two sets of pictures of two different years we've mulched it. This place takes 33

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...5107642&type=3yards each time.
