    I need 8 yards of cedar mulch for a job and I cant find a place near me(burlington county) that supplies it. The only place I know of is at home depot by the bag and I really dont feel like loading over 100 bags of mulch into my trailer...

    You NEED it made of cedar or just red? I havnt seen real Cedar anywhere recently in the past couple years, maybe i dont go to the right places.

    But Brittons 227 bakers basin rd, in Lawrenceville, NJ has the nice Red dye/hardwood chipped mulches for about $18 a yard. 609-588 8225.

    Since your in my area, you know of anywhere else in NJ that allows you to take their "free" chipped mulch from the recyling facilities like on kuser rd in hamilton? Thing about that place that sucks is that you'd need to take your own skid steer or loader there on one trailer to load the damn truck up with mulch, far as i know its still come get it yourself, they have no machine there to load people up.

    It needs to be cedar, not just dye. Home depot has bags of it but thats gonna be a pain in the ass...

    If it makes you feel better, all we have here is bags. There is NO place to buy bulk mulch. And cedar mulch isn't red either... The stuff at HD and lowes is about the same color as cypress, or a little darker brown, and the good stuff, the shreaded ceader is a dark brown. Of course, hold on to your butt, because the cheap is $4.00 a 2 cu ft. bad at lowes, and $6.00 a bag for a good shreaded 3 cu ft. bags at the garden center.

    i guess its hard to have companies ONLY chip cedar to use for mulch so thats why its expensive, i assumed it was WAY up there. smells nice though i guess.
