We usaully find 10-20lbs per year then quit, that is plenty...I have also pulled bags of morels out of customers yards. I use to sell wild mushrooms also. I have even found truffels in customers yards before.

Nope it was covered so it was dry!
Made 3 trips! had the dump truck filled with 10yrds plus 5 in the dump trailer! Both have sides.
Figured it would save me a little on gas.. But it was a pain disconnecting and reconnecting to dump

At least you got the job done. We did a mulch job one year and it rained the night before and i already had the mulch dropped on site and it was a pita moving wet heavy mulch. I learned a good lesson from that one. COVER EVERYTHING.lol

Why?
Doesn't rain wash away mulch?
And April showers bring ma---- ahh forget it!
Doesn't make much sense to lay mulch that will wash away.

Aj I'm not gonna bash u like everyone else does but alot of my customers have events like parties starting from passover and Easter to grad parties in July. They want their yard looking good for their parties! If they want it done I'm gonna do it! Yes it is a little early but I know why they want it down. If you know what your doing it wont float away! Unless it's that rubber crap!
The 40 yards we layed today was in a sub enterances,gardens and a park so so it had to look good. I have 2 customers who I lay mulch for twice a year for! They have me do it right before Easter and right before their anniversary in July... Just because he's OCD about his landscape but I don't mind!
