Mulch Delivery Prices

Incorporating mulch into your landscape or garden can provide many different benefits. You may want to use a mulching mixture to retain moisture in the soil, especially if you live in a climate that is arid. Some home owners and gardeners look for complex mulch mixtures that include nutrients that are lacking in the soil and are important for growing specific plants or vegetables. Others consider decorative materials that will add to the curb appeal and value of a home. In many cases, the materials will determine the cost.

Popular mulch and landscaping products can carry high price tags. A bag containing less than 1 cubic foot of mulch can range from $2 to $10 in price, and ordering in bulk can help in lowering the costs. The type of material used will play a role in pricing.


If you aren't familiar with volume, you may want to ask your landscape company or lawn and garden business to provide an idea of what to expect. Knowing the dimensions of the area to be covered is important, and many nurseries and landscaping businesses can help in determining what quantity is needed as you explain your plans. You can also use computer programs or calculators to evaluate the volume of mulch required for your project. Check with your delivery company to obtain bulk pricing for deliveries of larger quantities. Ordering too much mulch can lead to overspending, and ordering too little can lead to increasing your delivery fees if you need to reorder, meaning that if you are limited on storage and yard space, your request for a mulch delivery needs to be as precise as possible.

Professional Landscape Service

If you have a very specific project idea with precise visual results in mind, then you may want to hire a landscape architect to help in planning, ordering and placing materials. This will ensure that you achieve the look you want without a mess. Your landscape architect can see the project through from design to cleanup, ensuring that the outcome is pleasing. This is an ideal approach if you live in a community with strict requirements for outside improvements. It's also a good way to limit waste of delivered material.
