    Now heres a weird ? that I've often wondered about...when mulch is wet...very wet...do we get more, less, or about the same when its loaded? Obviously it weighs more.(and yes I do keep track of how many 10 cu ft 'barrows we use on each job but haven't done much mulch pick up in the rain. thanks

    I don't have a clue. lol Never measured that .
    I would assume, lol that when its wet it is more compacted than when dry. So I would assume we get more.
    But thats just my assumption.

    I'd assume the same. When the mulch is wet it gets compacted and when they scoop it in the bucket to load it, it seems you would get more mulch...
