Saving on Saturday 3/17/2018

I mentioned yesterday that we had purchased a trailer of mulch. The cost of the mulch was $15. I was totally amazed at the amount of mulch that we received. Here is a picture of the trailer AFTER I worked on spread for a couple of hours on Friday night.

I have never purchased mulch this way before. I am used to purchasing by the bag at Lowes.  I would have been able to purchase approximately 7 bags at Lowes during the best sale which is $2 a bag. This was ALOT of mulch. We were able to apply mulch to all 3 flower bed around the house in addition to the two areas in front of the building and the new area I started in front of the kids play house.

I have been doing some research and the mulch should help maintain the temperature better, hold water and prevent weeds.
