    According to the mulch calculator mentioned in my previous post, you would need (rounding up to 12 yards) 162 2 cu ft bags.

    If you round up to 12 yards, 162 bags X $ 2.25 = 364.50 + tax.

    In bulk it would be $ 408 for 12 yards.

    With bags you or one of your guys could pre stage the bags and then everyone else (or you) could just follow behind and spread them.

    With bulk the quality may be better and the amount easier to get plus you can get it delivered.
