    For the first time, This year I will be buying my mulch in bulk rather than from the nursery. I have access to a loader and a storage site and would like to be able to reduce my expenses a bit.

    I am estimating that I will need 2-3 semi loads of double ground hardwood mulch delivered to my site near Ballwin, MO. (Very near St. Louis) Each semi load is roughly 55-75Cu Yds depending on who you are buying from.

    So far I have contacted:
    St Louis Composting ($12/yd delivered, semi load)
    River City Supply ($16.50/yd delivered, semi load)

    It seems obvious to go with St. Louis composting but I am not happy with the quality of their mulch. It is often inconsistent in texture having either a lot of leaves or a lot of chips and rarely (in my experience) a nice perfect hardwood mulch.

    What I am wondering is if anyone from around St. Louis has suggestions of who else to contact for bulk mulch delivery.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Maybe a little far away but Jones Mulch in Memphis maybe an option.
    I know they have a fleet of semis and good quality mulch.

    Very good rates at $11.50/yd delivered for 75yd truck to Ballwin.
    They deliver to most of the retailers around here and have a great product.
    I will be using Foster Brothers for sure.


    Green Country Soils

    OK rates starting at $12/yd + delivery. They charge $2.80/mile for delivery. May be a good supplier for many of you.

    I buy my mulch from River City in Seneca, IL don't know if this is the same company but it is really nice mulch at 16.50 a yard.
