I get my mulch from: Keller Material - Stone and Landscaping Supplies in San Antonio, Texas ( my part of town
I didn't compared the price with Walmart, Lowe's or Home Depot, but it is good quality and seems to be fairly cheap.

I'd go with the bulk mulch from GardenVille or Fertile Gardens if you want it looking good. It's usually cheaper than bagged mulch.

In January, they will have mulch available made from chipped Christmas trees...mmmmmmmm

We get our mulch from Jabez, located on 281 N, just outside the San Antonio city limits. They stopped carrying single shred, though

I'll have more mulch than I know what to do with very soon. I have about 3-4 four inches of Pecan leaves on my back yard that I will be sucking up with the lawn mower in a few days. Instant mulch. If I was going to by some though I would be going to Kellers. They have good mulch and better compost than even Gardenville and I don't have to drive all the way across town to get it.

If one was to get the free city mulch, where to get it? I'm a newbie to the area.

Only the coarse mulch is available for free. There is a nominal fee for fine mulch. You would get it at the Brush Recycling Center, 1800 Bitters Rd., just north of the airport.
