    We normally get 10-12 yards of Mulch every year (EVERY YEAR!!!). Next year we are doing River rock in most of our beds. After she seen how nice my Firewood area turned out (and I didnt need to get more rock this year, or any yr for that matter) she decided we should do the extra work amd pull the mulch from the some of the current beds and replace...

    It wont be all, but it will be the Bigger beds. I dont mind 2-4 yards of mulch.

    Any pics of the finished product?? BTW-I know I said it before, but nice Rhino, Truck, and Trailer.. When we gettin together to go riding? LOL

    Could you post some pic of the area that you covered with it? I have a few spots I've been thinking of putting rock down.

    I pulled up all of our mulch last year and put down river rock in the landscaping around the house. It was one of the smartest things I have done.

    We revamped the beds in front of our house this spring. My wife wanted a stone boarder, decorative gravel instead of mulch, and then all of the plants in containers.

    Between that, and building a paver patio, a deck, and a paver walkway between the two... I have shoveled more gravel this year than I think I care to for the rest of my life.
