My mulch supplier loves me. I will go into the office and pay for ten yards of mulch, the loader will load my trailer to overflowing and then pack it down. I always thought that we should try counting wheelbarrows, but we never got around to it. Well, we finally did. Paid for ten yards of hardwood. Got to the job and started mulching. 10 yds, 27 cu ft per yd = 27-10 cu ft wheelbarrows full. Well, that 27 wheelbarrows full was perfect to finish the job. Guess what. I have a third of my trailer still full of mulch. I like that they are generous with the mulch, but I don't like spreading mulch for free. Does anyone else count wheelbarrows? Do you think this is fair? I see mulch advertised in my area for $40/yd installed. My mulch, at the cheapest of multiple wholesale suppliers (at least seven), is $21/yd. I couldn't fathom that price. I bet they count wheelbarrows!
