is there a limit on these? can i get 10/$20 in one transaction?

Sadly the online ad is still on this week. They have mulch for 5/!0 but 1.5 cu 2ut the one in this deal is 2.0 cu
I bought a pallet when it was on for memorial day; bonus that it was also Texas tax free weekend for emergency, energy saver, and water saver supplies.

I've bought both this mulch and the Scott's (that was the pallet). They're both similar in my area, although the Scott's color seems to be better (I got the red). I remember finding a plastic strap in one bag of this brand, and some large chunks with paint on them in both brands, but no metal; and I haven't had any issues with mold, even though some of the bags were moldy when I opened them. But that was also true for some high dollar organic mulch I bought at the garden store. For landscaping, it's perfectly fine; I didn't put it in the garden beds because of the dye, and that it could have treated wood in it.

im gonna need around 20 bags. Is it cheaper to just go to the co-op and fill a trailers worth?
Check with nearby city recycling programs and local tree services. Often they have mulch they give away if you load it. Or chipdrop.com if you've got the room for a whole truckload.

So chipdrop, looks like it is woodchips...and before i place a 20 cu yard order...an wondering if anyone have experience with them can comment more.

two questions from a noob

1) how are they for gardens (e.g. keeping moisture for the plant and weeds)

2) Would the woodchips from chipdrop for walkways/areas for fill? I have a giant patch of just dirt (not even dirt, more like dust) in my backyard that I want to fill. Was thinking of trying to throw grassseeds down, but I prefer something with lower maintenance.

I haven't used chip drop personally but you don't know what you're getting. It's up to the local tree trimmer that participates and it's whatever they happen to have a truck full of.

Mulch is wood chips. The difference is price, feedstock, and how small the chips are. The chipdrop and city recycling stuff (and likely the co-op) is from local trees and companies, not treated, and doesn't include scrap wood like construction lumber. Bagged mulch, unless it's really expensive, is like a box of chocolates.

If the spot in your yard is low, you'll need to add some topsoil to level it first, but yes, mulch will cover it just fine, and eventually turn the dust into better soil. (West Texas here, we know dust.)

There is a whole subset of the gardening world that swears by wood chips for everywhere in the garden. There's a guy on YouTube, a vegan martial artist, that has a full blown tropical forest in the middle of Arizona because he has like 4 feet of wood chips as ground cover.

Yes spray pre emergent on top of mulch. Like prodiamine.
Thanks! I'm going to look at that.
Quote from MadmanJoe

Agreed, this is a huge problem. Hand weeding from the top of the mulch is a PITA, and sometimes pre-emergents will kill everything nearby, and are a bad idea unless absolutely necessary.

I have had some luck using a multiple player approach: first layer, use tons of brown cardboard (not color or printed), next layer, use weed block fabric (note that the fabric you can buy at landscaping professional stores will always beat big box, HD, or Lowe's, as it is much, much thicker), then the top layer is the wood mulch.

As a maintenance method, I use a vacuum mulcher instead of a blower or rake. I have one that has an adjustable vaccum intake speed. I set this to try to suck up weed seeds and lawn clippings that get caught in the mulch. This delays breakdown in the bed and less opportunity for sprouting seeds.

I top dress with new mulch every so often and I get a few years out of it using this method.

I hope this helps!
Thanks - i might have to do the pre-emergent. My landscaper uses a side discharge, which i think contributes to the problem.

The other guy is thinking POST-Emergent, like quinclorac,1,3d, glyphosate.

If you have a gallon sprayer, a little pre-emergent, takes about 30 seconds to mix, set the fan spray to wide coverage, takes less than 5 minutes to spray the location where you're laying down mulch. It works like a charm and wont kill your bushes. I wouldn't do post emergent near shrubs.

Another option use, preen mulch, it comes with pre-emergent applied. It's a little more expensive per bag, and there may be junk fillers in the mulch like all mulch bags. But you get what you pay for.

If you can deal with large quantity, getchipdrop is a free option [getchipdrop.com]. Note that they will drop a truck load on to your driveway.

i like the pre-emergent - didn't know what it's called before your post, so thank you. I'd rather just get the stuff and spray or sprinkle it. Looking around, I do see that preen has one to sprinkle and wet.

do you have a particular recommendation? I'm thinking 1x or 2x a season to just go spray it to keep the weeds out.

thanks much for your reply!

Just be careful of termite. My garden has termites showing up after mulching with those. Pest control says it's very likely from the mulch.

Beware, 20 cubic yards is a giant space. make sure you're buying the right quantity. 20 yd^3 will fill an entire average size backyard

Mulch isnt wood chips. Cheap mulch is wood chips.
