    I have a customer who wants Cypress mulch. The only way I can get it in Oklahoma is by the bag. I've been calling around for prices and they are ranging from $1.84 for a 2 cu ft bag all the way up to $10.19 for a 3 cu ft. bag. Isn't it all the same? If not, how do you know if it is any good. thanks in advance for your replies.

    I just finished a job using cypress mulch from Home Depot (180 bags) No Float Mulch. It took me and my guy about 5 hours to do entire job. Walked away with $925 after pay roll ( not bad for one day) I would suggest to have the mulch deliverd. I like to use bag mulch, because it easier to handle clean up is easy, How big is this job you are looking at ? :D

    Measured out at 971 sq. ft or 6 cubic yards. 2" thick at about 81 bags. Were you happy with the mulch quality? Home depot is about the cheapest I can find. Does anyone have an account with them?

    I love the Home Depot no float shredded cypress. All I use. Under $2.00 a bag for 2cu ft. I usually charge around $5.00 per bag installed. Corbins I believe is the name brand.

    The reason for some of the price dif. are shredding techniques. Some are shredded very fine, and go a long way. Some are ripped, some are broken down by other methods.

    might as well buy the cheap stuff. Cypress is cypress, the cost like metioned is the way its shredded. I like the finely shredded personally.
