    Afternoon, everybody. I run a mulch yard and am looking for suggestions as to how I can make my yard more attractive to LCOs and also more convenient for them.

    This is how my facility is:

    In front there is a big brush pile and windrows of leaves. They have to be out front as I'm operating the site for the town and grinding brush/composting leaves. In the back of the facility I've got a few mulches.

    I've got:
    single ground - 5/yd
    double ground - 19/yd
    red - 31/yd
    brown - 28/yd
    The above are all recycled wood
    hardwood bark mulch - 32/yd
    pine - 34/yd

    screened topsoil - 30/yd
    screened compost - 20/yd

    I load mulch with a 1yd bucket and topsoil/compost with a 1/2yd bucket and haven't heard any complaints.

    Anything you guys would like to see a mulch yard have that I don't have listed? Cedar is a little too expensive for me to carry and my prices are as low as I can get them for my area. I know for a fact I'm 10/yd cheaper on red mulch than a place a couple miles away. Since my prices are already as low as I can get them I can't do any contractor/volume discounts or I'd be losing money.

    Suggestions very welcome. Thanks.
