Here are some of the most commonly asked questions along with some helpful answers and solutions.
Can we come there and pick up products?

Mulch - Cubic Yards
How much is a cubic yard?
Most mulch is sold in units of cubic yards. One cubic yard will cover an area of 81 square feet (9'x9') approximately 3-4 inches deep.
Mulch - Floating
Which mulch floats?
The pine bark and the mini pine nuggets have a tendency to float, so you'll want to use caution with inclines. The hardwood has fibers that lock together and stay in place much better.
