    That's crazy how mulch prices go up every year, not that it's any cheaper here...

    But 8 years ago, when I started...
    I used to get a cubic yard for $12.50

    It's dang right around $30 now.

    wow was that $35 a yard delivered. Or $35 a yard picked up? If so I may quit picking it up myself and just pay to have it delivered. Right now I pickup from Jones. Let me know if you get behind or need some help on large accounts mowing this year I quoted myself a little lite and am looking for about 15 hours more mowing a week for me and my Lazer. Thanks

    The cheapest place I have found is buy directly from a timber co. There should be an outfit rather close to you that cuts it down strips the bark for manufacturing purposes
    (pallets etc..) you can save big $$ this way. I save $10.00 a yard this way

    Go to Kurtz Brothers, one in dublin, westerville and groveport. Im not sure how much you buy but im getting it for 23.99 a yard in amerimulch black (double processed dyed). Had awesome luck with them and they have nice dump sites too.

    Kurtz bros is good. Mr Mulch is also in Columbus area and has a guarentee on if someone has it cheaper (actually alot of them around cbus do) but i recall them being more expensive overall. If you are buying in large quantities you should get a discount if not free delivery. However if you are small and get it delivered to each job dont expect much of a deal unless its a bigger job.
