For you guys who buy mulch wholesale and stock pile it, when do you get the mulch delivered? Is it cheaper to get it delivered during the winter months? How long does mulch usually stay fresh for? What price could I expect to pay for 160-240 yrds of dark pine? I am in Mass. Mulch retails here around $30-35 per yard. I'd like to get it wholsale around $9-15 /yard. I am fed up with my retail mulch supplier who charges me $32/per yard knowing that I am going to be buying 150-200 yards from him. This spring I will have to suck it up and continue going to him, but I am planning ahead for next spring. Any input would be great. Are some skid steers better for loading then others? Like the 773 w/ vertical lift, or new hollands?
