    How much per yard are you all getting your mulch for...
    For this one project I need 70 yards of Cocoa Brown Mulch= got is priced at $1960 and thats with delivery, so thats 28 bucks a yard? Does that sound about right or is it cheaper anywhere closer where you all are from...Im getting mine around the KC area..
    Thanks,
    Cole

    You do know that stuff is deadly to dogs, it contains a natural chemical called Theobromine (spelling) it only takes a very small amount to do the damage. once it is ingested it is almost always fatal, might want to look into it before you put it down. if you do still want to put it down besure you disclose this info with your client.

    Moose, I think he means Cocoa Colored mulch, not cocoa shell mulch.
    If I am buying a trailer worth of mulch, I am not paying that delivery or not.
    Call around. What are you charging per yard for installation?

    28 bucks a yard sounds pretty high. I was paying between 15 & 22 bucks a yard last season depending on were i got it from.
