    Just wondering, but why are some of you guys using bagged mulched instead of bulk? For me, bulk is cheaper for my clients and a lot easier to move plus then I get a contractors on bulk!

    For smaller jobs it saves time and money in the long run. no clean-up, no delivery, no shoveling. Anything over 3 yards and I buy bulk

    You got a blower for that right?

    We had one place i worked at that took over 200. They brought the blower just for it.

    It had a 50 ft retaining wall we had to climb down a ladder 25 ft and blow the first half in lol

    I am using bags for this job because I am doing it myself. I gave it a lot of thought and I decided that I would rather use the bags. Where I am doing the job it is actually easier for me to use them rather than a wheelbarrow. I also am not losing anything by going with the bags through the greenhouse I buy my products off of.

    I laid down 30 yards solo last week by hand. Have another 9 tomorrow and 5 on Friday. I'll be glad when it's done!
