    Built my wife a planter box the day before issues with my father started.

    Today, I was finally able to go get her some mulch.

    This is what $45 will get you at Phillips Bark in Brookhaven.

    That is after I filled in all the corners to try and level it off some.

    (Had to pick up some metal at Reed's so pic is in there shop)

    I filled her 4x8x1 planter up to the top and still have enough in the truck for 2 or 3 more.

    The local tree trimmers needed a place to dump their load of chewed up trees so we let them dump a load in the field. That was 2 years ago and we still have a good pickup load left on the ground.

    I saw an ad on craigslist for the chips from tree trimmers. It's located in CA, asked if I'd pay $50 per load, nope.
    I'll need to call some so they can start dumping here if they are in the area for free.

    Sorry, but I didnt have time to wait or shop around.

    Just was putting it out there in case others need to work on their "honey-do" list.

    If you pile the tree trimmer mulch up and put eggs in it, it will cook your eggs. That stuff will kill whatever you put it on, if'n you don't wait a while. It gets hot. People used to beg the power company for it, then call complaining about what all it killed.

    When mom lived at Oakland she got 3 large dump truck loads from the mill nearby. The driver charged $20 per load for the short distance he traveled. We sprayed it for termites when it was about 3 months old. Didn't dig into it until it was a year old.

    Too bad they're so far away from me. Got a couple trees I could use some on.
