If you are thinking about buying mulch for the flowerbeds around your home, you might be thinking about buying the bags of mulch that are available at your average garden center. Although this might seem like the easy way to buy mulch, there is one better option -- hiring a dump truck operator to pick up and deliver a truckload full of mulch to your home. These are a few reasons why you should consider this way of buying mulch instead of opting for the bags.
Bagged Mulch Doesn't Go As Far As You Think
Depending on the size of your project, you might find that you need a lot more mulch than you think. Bagged mulch doesn't cover up as much area as you might think, and you might end up being quite short for your project if you rely on bags. A dump truck load will help you cover a lot more area.
You Can Get a Much Better Price
Unless you only need a very small amount of mulch, you can generally save a lot of money by buying a dump truck load full of it. As with most things, buying in bulk can be a whole lot cheaper. Plus, you'll be able to purchase your mulch from people who are offering it locally rather than from big companies that have invested the expense of producing mulch in bulk and having it bagged up. Even with the cost of having someone deliver the mulch on a dump truck, it's probably still going to be a lot cheaper than if you purchased it in bags.
You Can Share With Your Neighbors
Another great reason to buy mulch by the dump truck load is the fact that you'll have some to share, which can help out your neighbors and make your entire neighborhood look nice. One option is to split the cost with your neighbors to make it more affordable for everyone.
Your Projects Won't Be Limited
Even though you might only have small projects in mind right now when it comes to using mulch, you might be surprised by the ideas that you'll come up with once you have a dump truck load on your property. You might decide to create large flowerbeds or to use it in other ways, such as to level out your property in areas where there are visible tree roots.
As you can see, buying your mulch and having it delivered by the dump truck load can be a smart option. Consider contacting the professionals at Skippers Trucking to discuss how their services can meet your needs.
