    I'm getting started with mulch jobs soon and unfortunately the supplier I used last year is no longer around. Who has some good clean mulch in the Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, Fairlawn, and Bath areas? I've heard of a guy selling some Amish mulch around here but I'm looking for some more options.

    I'll be checking out Mulch Makers' "landscapers" mulch but won't be interested in it if it is like last's way too fine and doesn't hold its color for long at all compared with bark mixes from other places.

    Let me know if you have some ideas....

    How much do you figure you are going to use this season? I am thinking about getting a load from a lumber company in Holmes county, but I need to order it at 100+ yards at a time. If I can find someone who needs enough of it, I will buy it and have it delivered to my home in Doylestown. I just don't usually use that much.

    The place that I was reffering to is a small lumber mill that is run by an Amish guy so I don't have a number.
    OlderThanDirt has PM'd me with information on another guy from the area. I really don't think I can beat his price. If OlderThanDirt wants to post his information here, it may help you out. I don't want to post it in case he doesn't want the information made public.

    Have any of you guys bought mulch from the guy on Hazel Street in Akron? Is it any good?

    ANyone know of a good supplier in the Cincinnati area? Prices I looked at yesterday was about $24/yd + $29 delivery. The delivery fee is acceptable but the mulch seemed a little high. I would like to spend closer to $20 or below if possible.
