    I am looking for those mesh style tarps that people use to put over mulch and top soil when hauling it. Thanks for any help

    Ditto...that's where I got mine.

    To me they are the best tarps for MOST uses. They are lighter than other materials, VERY durable, etc. They are just not very "shape-able" to use in tight areas to catch hedge clippings.

    I use one of mine and lay it on my open trailer, have them dump the mulch on it, then over wrap the mulch.

    John Deere also has them in different sizes and colors. Great also for protecting foliage while transporting plant material.

    All the nurseries and greenhouses around me carry them. Also, our local TSC store carries them in stock, and Countrymax can order them for you.
