    On Monday me and a friend, hand layed over 5000 pounds of mulch. All bagged in 6 hours. That was the longest day ever! And the job isnt even over yet. Now I know when a job is too big for me.

    Well mulch typically weighs around a quarter to a third ton (if wet) per yard bulk so probably around 8-10 yards.
