    I buy large quantities at a time to store on site. My supplier called me Friday and said the cost per yard will be increasing in the near future. He didn't have an approximate $ figure yet but said he didn't expect it to be significant.
    Right now I pay $10 per yard for double ground hardwood, my most popular mulch.

    i WISH i KNEW HOW YOU GUYS GOT IT SO CHEAP. I'm with planet, I get it for the same price . The problem I have is that I don't get the trailer load price if I pick it up in 8 loads. They always tell me you have to get it all at once. Going to try to talk to the management and see what they can do. Where do you guys live getting this so cheap. How much do you buy green pro to get it that price?
