How is this for frustrating???

We live in Northern WI and I have searched high and low for pine bark fines. One day on my way to work, I took a better look at this hugh pile of mulch....and it looked GREAT! Looking good right???

How wrong!! I have left MULTIPLE messages for this business asking about this pile of mulch....and nary a call back:( The place is a home design place that seems to sell mulch....they do have at least one pricing sign in the yard. But either they don't want to bother with a cubic yard, or they are just to darn snooty!!

So close....yet so far way:((((

Are you sure it's pine mulch? Any security cameras? Only kidding. Keep looking, there has to be a source in your area. I was frustrated last year, but kept looking and ended up finding it. Did you call every mulch place you can? I found double ground pine bark at $15 for a small pick-up full.

RE: How is this for frustrating???

Still working on that special pine bark place:) We live in logging country and you would think we could locate this stuff...but darn. I will keep what you said in mind....double ground pine bark, there has to be somewhere around. We have very minimal landscape and garden places around, and I have been searching in a 1.5 hour radius. Not giving up yet, but starting to wonder.
