“How much for a ‘scoop’ of mulch?” a caller asks on the phone. When I answer the dollar amount per cubic yard of mulch, sometimes I get a quick “Ok, thanks,” and hear a click as the caller moves on down the list of suppliers to find the lowest price “per scoop”. The only problem with this kind of price shopping is that the caller isn’t comparing apples to apples.
Have you ever purchased peanuts or candy by the pound? There is a scale on which the shopkeeper weighs the product to ensure the consumer gets the exact amount for which they are paying. Same goes for meats and cheeses at the deli counter. An honest shopkeeper has an accurate scale.
The difference in the size of the “scoop” of bulk mulch, topsoil, or landscape stone follows the same rule. The only problem is, the size of the scoop (a loader bucket) isn’t regulated, so the consumer must depend on the honesty of the supplier to get a fair price per cubic yard.
The Real Question is, “How many ‘scoops’ or bags of mulch in a yard? At Westminster Lawn Landscape Supply Yards, it’s one certified cubic yard of mulch per bucket.
At Westminster Lawn Service Landscape Supply Yards, we have certified cubic yard buckets on our loaders to ensure the customer of an accurate measurement of the product they are purchasing. This is important when converting square feet to cubic yards and determining how deep you need to spread the product.
I’ve seen people head to the lower priced “scoop”, only to return to the seemingly higher priced Cubic Yard. When they go to spread the material on their landscape area, they realize, through trial and error, that they are actually paying more for a yard of mulch when they buy by the scoop.
