    What kind of price are you paying for your bulk mulch? I pay $33 per yard with a $55 delivery charge, but if i get more than 4 yards its a $35 delivery charge. Im just curious as to the price that others are paying for mulch.

    im paying 28.00 for colored, less for natural, loaded in my trucks, and the mulch factory is pretty much centered in my service radius.

    I get triple shredded black gold for 21 a yard delivered. not too bad of a price around here where mulch is anywhere between 25 and 30 a yard.

    Great price Mac.

    I pay like $22.50 for Brown.
    Black is $26.00.
    The reason the price's are so high is because they are right in the middle of the city here with nothing else around.
    Another place just opened up with all bulk products being sold for $19 per yard.They also let you dump all yard waste for free except dirt.So I might start buying from them.

    If we can find a truck with a walking floor this winter we can get it for $8 and pay for the delievery. I have a place to store it if you need to. How much you get in the city a yd of double ground hardwood delievered and spread? I'm still charging $70. There seems to be a lot of resistence past that, but I've been charging the same price since 2002
