If you’re looking for a decent deal on mulch – most of the sales were earlier this Spring and already over with :( However – Lowe’s has their Premium Mulch 2 Cu Ft Bags (including red and black colored mulch) on sale at 4/$10 or just $2.50 each through today (5/13!) I picked up some of the black mulch yesterday and it looks GREAT! (Not weirdly black as I’d feared – See the picture below with my new flowers )
Another great option (if you have a truck) is to look in the classifieds or ask around locally for those offering mulch by the tractor bucket. I could get a tractor load of mulch for just $10 – IF I only had a pickup truck to haul it away!!
ALSO – See our post on using Newspapers to tamp down weeds instead of landscaping fabric!
