    I have been in the lawn and landscape maintenance for 10 years. I have used many tri-axle loads of mulch in that time period. Now I'm thinking of opening my own mulch yard this early spring. I am truly interested in your opinion on how to get started. This yard will have about 6 different mulches and many types of stone material. Is this a good thing or bad thing? Where to buy mulch in large quantities? There are a few selling a small pile in different areas around me but no one with a large yard. Thanks

    You'll have to consider having someone there to take orders, load, etc. You'll need a machine, loader to lod peoples vehicles and trailers. You can and porbably will need a dump to make deliveries as well. A lot to consider and take on.
