How many 2 cf bags are on a pallet? heck, and how many 3 cf bags too?
The ones I buy are 5 yards
Where I am at, there are 60 2 cu. ft. bags on a pallet. It takes 13.5 of these bags to make 1 yard of mulch. 1 pallet is about 4.5 yards of mulch.
Just did a small job in FL and there was 75 2 cu. ft. bags on the pallet., I think they just bumped it up from 70.
What are you guys paying for a yard of mulch in bulk??
Premium Hardwood Mulch?
Ugly Red mulch?
Around here a yard of premium hardwood is going for around $30.00. What would your mark up be to install one yard?? With NO bed preparation.
I don't do much install of mulch, just the mowing customers I've got, about 5 accounts / year.
I thought buying bagged last year killed me, but as i investigate further it is only a little more per yard than bulk. And i have not even tried to negotiate a bagged price.
I imagine that over time using bulk you will really come out a little more each scoop compared to bagged.
I think for me to use bulk, i will need to get a great price... I did not realize bagged would be as easy as it was... and best of all NO CLEANUP
