    Unfortunately, I left about 40 bags of hardwood bark mulch out over the weekend in the rain and it got soaked. Will this dry out and will it be usable. Any input would be nice. Thanks.

    Will it hurt if I let it dry?

    It wont dry very fast still in the bag but it's not going to hurt it any. Nurseries, Garden Centers leave that stuff outside for sale all the time, and think about it once it's is spread out it will not only rain on it but probably be irrigated almost nightly.
