    This is what we use to re-cut edges also.

    Small job we did two weeks ago. Not a fan of red mulch but the customer wanted it and loved the finished job.

    Was working on a mulch job today. Will be about 15 yards total. Have to park in back of business and haul mulch to front. The garden way cart I'm using holds almost 1/2 a yard and has no weight on the handle. Much easier on my back than a wheelbarrow.

    That's pretty much all it comes down to......

    Heres one i did Saturday. Just a small 2 cubic yard of cedar job. Turned out well i think! Couldn't imagine using bagged...just got 2 scoops on my trailer and didn't have to worry about bags or anything. I would rather shovel it than dump it from a bag. Got the contractor discount also.

    Stupid question, but why would you buy so many bags over just going and getting a few yards in a trailer? Is not the cost of a trailer load so much cheaper then buying bags?

    I have tried to explain this to my customers, but I have since learned there exist some folks who simply are not interested, they will do as they please and after so many years I get tired of talking about it so I just let them do as they wish.

    not a real fan of the red either but it does break up all the brown tones on the house.
