If you’re looking for a decent deal on mulch – it’s like Black Friday for people who like to play in the dirt! Home Depot’s Spring Black Friday just started and that mean’s the good Scott’s Colored Mulch is only $2 PER BAG. If you order online you can pick up in store – that way you can make sure you snag how much you need before they run low.
I picked up some of the black mulch last year and it looks GREAT! (Not weirdly black as I’d feared – See the picture below with my new flowers ) And check out our post on DIY Flower Planters for the secret to getting professional-looking pots!
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!!
