    Hey guys:

    Getting ready to get a semi load of mulch (from a mill) hauled out to the shop. How much are yall paying for your bulch mulch? Or are yall buying it from a retailer, not a wholesale provider? Thanks for the help.

    I get hardwood mulch for about $26/yd in smaller quantities. Larger orders get a bigger discount (more like $20-$22 when 10-20 yds). . . That is also for the really nice, dark, even-spreading mulch. The rougher stuff is always cheaper.

    I was getting light pine bark for 35/yd and red mulch for 48/yd from retail. Just found a wholesale yard that has pine bark for 27 and red mulch for 37.

    I paid $17 a yard today from my local supply yard. Not bulk either, this was for 6 yds.

    I paid around 23 a yard for color enhanced, dark hardwood mulch. By far the highest quality stuff I have ever seen, and that price was for a 80 yard semi load.

    I am lucky to have a mulch wholesaler (Boiling Forest ) roughly 2 miles down the road from my house. Buying in a non bulk way (usually two or three yards at a time) I get the mulch depending or type from between $20 a cubic yard to $26

    We pay $15-$16 a yard for double processed bulk. I'm looking into getting triple processed this year depending on the price difference. Where in KY are ya? It's a bit early for mulch aint it? I'm still hopin for some snow!

    Up here in Michigan, we get 150 yds. of premium hardwood delivered to our shop a few times a year and it's $18.25 a yd. We then turn around and sell it for $36.00 a yard. Big mark-up, that's why it's good to get things in bulk if you can.
