    Just wondering how much everyone pays for mulch...? I personally pay $22 a yard and think that is very high for someone in the trade to pay. And I do believe that it is far cheaper to buy it cheaper right across the bridge in NJ.

    Think the last time I figured 7.50 per yard for hardwood mulch by the semi truck load. I have it hauled in and it is there when i need it. Yes it does carry some overhead with it though.

    I'm in New Jersey and pay 21.00 per yard, retail is 25.00 per yard. I know of a couple places to get it for 10.00 a yard but I have and account with the nursery that right in my town so theres barley any travel time.

    I'm in Jersey too. I pay 14-18 per yd for triple ground mulch that is real dark.

    here in Ohio it's $25 for the public, $22.50 for landscapers, which I think is pathetic, for all the biz we give them.

    Bulk mulch (various kinds)here in Texas is $14.50 to $28.00 per yd. Installed price is $34.00 per yd + delivery fee. Bagged mulch is $1.80 my cost and retails for $3.75 per 3cu ft bag.
    If your rich then you get cypress mulch at a whopping $4.25 a bag retail with no discount for landscapers.

    Triple ground Dark

    $18 a yard for up to 50 yards

    $16 a yard for 50+ yards.

    Its usually cheaper in bulk, so it helps if you have the equipment and a place to store a big load fro the season. You can save a lot of money if you have the equipment to handle it through the season. (which not to many people do)

    $10/yd, less if you spend big money with them over the year
