    $17 dbl/shred delivered to customer site....I don't like delivering it unless I have to...you have a great price...and if its dark with no junk wood... even better....been trying to find dark mulch for my own property but no luck...it all fades out no matter how much they charge per yard...tried oak bark once....very nice and VERY EXPENSIVE

    We buy bulk and bagged from Morse Bro's and Maine mulch company. Maine mulch has almost perfect mulch, dark stays dark all season and can be fluffed over in late summer or early fall and will look new agian. Our costs are different from bulk to bagged but we also go through 3-4 trailer trucks a year! Dark blend runs $14.75 bulk and $17.25 bagged , light blend $13.50 bulk and $16.25 bagged, red ceder $16.25 bulk and $19.25 bagged. Prices will and do vary depending on load size and delivery date and are average prices. Retail we sell dark for $23.95 a yard bulk or $25.95 a yard bagged and a bagged does go further then bulk! Red cer we get more. Try a yahoo search and see if any of these locations offer trucking service to you and also request a sample pack. www.morsebrothers.com

    Like I said the prices do vary on dates ordered! But we feel its great prices for the high quility of mulch they provide! It also helps keep our costs down which then relate to lower costs for the client or consumer!

    $19 per yard for double shredded hard wood bark mulch picked up. We buy it as we need it in 5 to 6 yd loads.

    Are you buying from Coffman Tree?? If not where? We buy from a couple places and just talked to a salesman from Northern NJ and claims that he has tree parts mulch, no wood/pallets and they sell it for $7.50 a yard for double ground, and they also have colors red, brown, black, yellow and green for $15.50 a yard. I told him I want MSDS on the colored mulches as well as samples and pictures of their facility. He said ok I should have them this week.
