Buying Mulch in Bulk

Fresh landscaping mulch will give your yard a fresh, well-maintained appearance

Buying Mulch in Bulk

Mulch protects your landscaping investment and the environment. It slows topsoil erosion and provides nutrients for plants and protects their roots while also preventing weed growth and saving water by retaining moisture in the soil. 

Bulk mulch is sold by the cubic yard and can be delivered to your home or any job site in quantities from five to 25 cubic yards in a variety of colors and types. Check with your local Home Depot to see if delivery is available in your area.

This guide will help you determine the type of mulch that will best meet your needs. This Garden Club article has more information to help you understand which type of mulch is best suited to meet your yard's needs.
