    Not sure, but it sure fills up a bagger fast.
    It makes the best mulch IMO

    I think it looks best when its thick. I give it 30-40 sqft per bail to make it fluffy. When installed this way it settles into a nice mound. This mound makes the beds and tree rings stand out from the lawn.

    Shake it, tuck it, blow it! That what I tell my guys
