    I've done some calling and got the following prices from some local garden supply companies for Pine Bark Mix mulch (PBM) and Pine Bark Nuggets (PBN).

    Company 1

    PBM 30
    PBN 38

    Company 2

    PBM 24
    PBN 35

    Company 3

    PBM 20.80
    PBN 36

    All of the prices are based on the full charge (delivery included which is based on delivery of 10 yards (easy number to calculate)) per yard of mulch.


    Is it just me, or do these prices for pine bark nuggets seem quite high to you guys? I would love to get the job I'm estimating for, because a weekly mowing job is attached to it, but I would also like to make a profit on the mulch.

    So the bottom line is, do these prices seem in line? (I'm sure they very on location and such) What do you guys pay for your mulch?

    $31.50 either one. Picked up. My dump trailer will HOLD 20 yards of course I'd never LOAD that much on it.
