Kmart is firing up Blue Light specials this weekend at its B&M stores. The other deals are so-so, but $1/bag for mulch seems like a bargain (even though we don't know the size/weight of the bag)>

That does sound like a good deal, but they don't say what type of mulch. If it is cypress mulch, it is a better deal than if it is pine bark. They have closed all the K-Marts near me, so I guess it really doesn't matter. sad smiley

What's the deal with mulch this year? We were in Home Depot a few weeks ago and
they had Cypress mulch $2.27/bag Buy one get one free.

If you have a way to haul it you can still save money by going to a local mulch yard and
buy it by the scoop or yard.

My wife bought Hyponex or some private brand of Kmart once when she needed
some potting soil and it was awful, it had leaves and twigs mixed in. This deal appears
to be any mulch but Scott's Naturescapes.

Maybe there's a glut due to all the tornadoes and tree bug infestations .


Our town's sludge from the sewer plant gets sold to a (name brand) potting soil company that mixes it with mulch and sand to make " potting soil". Works well a s a fertilizer for plants but may contain metals that you might not want in your garden.

I got some freebie garden plants in peat pots this year that had an almost 100% mulch rather than peat and perlite growing medium. It kinda looked like mulched straw. Burpee rather than PW iirc, but the growing medium is the local grower.

From treepeople.com: "Free mulch is available in six locations across Los Angeles from the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation Mulch Program, but this is really composted yard waste from the city's yard waste collection. It tends to be dense and is better used as an amendment added and dug into problem soils (compacted heavy clay or extremely sandy soil) rather than mulch to cover the soil."

sad smiley

"Wood or bark chips work best when they are between one and three inches in size. Pieces smaller than that can smother the soil and do not allow enough oxygen to get into the soil. Larger pieces get kicked around or can cause tripping."

Heading to the local nurseries smiling smiley

.... and who wants to hang around K-mart all day waiting for these certain specials to "pop-up".... and only good for one-hour! Read the ad, it doesn't say available all day.

Humm, yeah - I could use some more mulch, but not so much I want to hang around a K-Mart on a Saturday, hoping for that one hour sale (probably running as soon as they open, with my luck). Cypress mulch is just couple of bucks a bag here and that's what I prefer to use. I like the color and it seems to hold up very well.

Most of the local Tree Cutting companies here offer free mulch. They have to pay the landfill to dispose of it, so they love it if you are willing to take it off their hands. Two years ago, they were trimming the oak trees at the Doctor's Office down the street from me. The back of their truck had a sign that said something like "Ask us about free mulch!". So I stopped and asked them. About an hour later, I had a mound of fresh oak mulch in my driveway.

Last year, I had some Camphor trees trimmed and told them to run it through the chipper and leave it in my driveway. Camphor mulch is great. Smells nice, and works really well at keeping the weeds down.
