    Any KC landscapers get bulk mulch delivered to jobs vs. having a special trailer to haul it with. I noticed most nurseries don't deliver it. Was thinking about purchasing a dump bed for a truck and delivering mulch.

    I used to get it in bulk from Suburban but to be honest I went to bags instead. Not that much of a difference in price and its alot easier on the back.

    Green Expectations (913.897.8076) sells mulch and delivers free w/ three yards or more. I have only bought dyed mulch from them for $26 a yard. Regular mulch will probably be less.

    I charge $75 a yard for dyed mulch installed, and $65 a yard for hardwood installed. Usually have it delivered since its free.

    I have a river rock job and need to find a good supplier. Empire wants 55-175 per ton, Randy's wants 40-190 per ton. Also need geo plastic and high end plastic edging

    Who's got the best prices for materials?

    Plastic edging is never high end. Rent a bed edger and cut a natural edge.
