Just wondering how much everyone pays for mulch...? I personally pay $22 a yard and think that is very high for someone in the trade to pay. And I do believe that it is far cheaper to buy it cheaper right across the bridge in NJ.
I'm in New Jersey and pay 21.00 per yard, retail is 25.00 per yard. I know of a couple places to get it for 10.00 a yard but I have and account with the nursery that right in my town so theres barley any travel time.
Bulk mulch (various kinds)here in Texas is $14.50 to $28.00 per yd. Installed price is $34.00 per yd + delivery fee. Bagged mulch is $1.80 my cost and retails for $3.75 per 3cu ft bag.
If your rich then you get cypress mulch at a whopping $4.25 a bag retail with no discount for landscapers.
Its usually cheaper in bulk, so it helps if you have the equipment and a place to store a big load fro the season. You can save a lot of money if you have the equipment to handle it through the season. (which not to many people do)
