    Does the rest of the forum think I am talking about bark mulch in pennsylvania or what? Maybe i should have asked "who here knows what penn mulch is?"

    I get it here in No. Va. for $13.50 a bag without quantity discounts. At times they run it on sale for $11.50. I do not buy large enough quantities of it to get a volume discount.

    Tried to buy it here and no one knows what it is. Lesco said they would order me some but it would have to be the whole pallet or nothing. Believe it worked out ot be 13 bucks per bag:(

    $15.50 per 50 lb bag.
    We don't buy that much of it because we only do small lawn installs, so we don't get any discounted price because we don't buy in volumes.

    It's a ridiculous 12 bucks a bag up here to cover "600" sq. ft.. THAT would sure raise the prices of seeding!:rolleyes:

    Been using UHS equivalent at $17.00\bag. Penn mulch is around the same usually, but it says it covers 750 - 800 sq. ft.? Still much cheaper for my customers vs. my price to install straw mulch, then return to remove & dispose of the straw after establishment.
