    My brother lives in Witchita Falls Tx and was needing to get some black mulch in bulk to do his beds. Do any of you know where he could get it around that area. Thanks in advance

    Ok, I should have known I would get smart azz answers. Let me break it down a little further. If you don't live around Wichita falls and cant recommend a good place then this is not the thread for you. I understand that google is a great tool but I would like a recommendation. If you are not mature enough to give me a strait answer, there are plenty of other threads that would love to enjoy your humor.

    Are you serious, why would anyone here do that?

    Now look here, I ain't the neighbor you can just talk to and give you all the advice for free,
    maybe someone here lives in or around that there town but maybe nobody does and this is the mowing section,
    fact is if you know how to haxor Google, you can find anything.

    The thing about searching has a LOT to do with understanding the workings of a search engine,
    you can look for something all day long and get nothing in ways of results but look for it the right way and
    long story short, it has to do with just HOW a search is phrased.

    Here, let me help:
    Granted that took me two tries, I must be getting old.

    Unfortunately I'm short on recommendations too, but what I can tell you is this...

    You do NOT want to get your mulch from another Lco who is roughly in the same business as you,
    you probably don't want it from a tree guy neither and I can assure you that you almost certainly
    don't want it from Lowe's, while nurseries tend to be a pricey option but might be worth a call.

    The place you need to find yourself is called a mulch yard, where all they do all day long is sell
    mulches and sands and rocks and gravels, that type of deal.
    That's would likely be the best place to get your mulch from, might involve either
    a bit of a drive or a delivery fee, also depending on how big your town is there
    may not be many of these yards around, as often as not the first one is a county away.

    Once you get a few of these rounded up you might pass the names along to folks you know
    and see if any of them know anything that might be helpful to you in ways of a recommendation.

    Hope that helps and sorry about the bit with the mowing section, my bad.

    Ok guys, I get the point. I do not live in TX, so I was just trying to get a simple question answered. Sorry I asked! I will not be responding anymore about this, so go ahead and have fun on me. :walking:
