Chester strikes again. Agreed to have him mulch our front flower beds and next thing we know he is in the back yard doing the same thing. Not part of the agreement. Tried to get $1,400 we sent him on his way and told him to take the mulch with him. Please be aware of this guy. Very pleasant but not trustworthy and not someone you want to do business with. Estimate is one thing final price is almost double. Oh yes! we had red flags but we needed or wanted the front to look better.

I don't have a clue who Chester is - but $1400 (or even half that) for mulch - yikes! How many square feet (or cubic yards if you have that figure) were you mulching?

FWIW - my husband and I just did some mulching. We paid a little under $3/bag for 2 cubic feet of shredded pine bark mulch (which is our favorite). 45 bags = $135. And we paid $25 to have the bags delivered to our house and placed in beds in the front and back. It was more than enough mulch for our front and back beds. The stuff is super easy to spread (just cut the bags open with a knife - and spread with the back of a rake). Even old folks like us can do it . Robyn
