Where to get wood chips/mulch to cover a small yard?
I would like to mulch over my small (16’x12′) yard since the dog has been gradually destroying all the grass. Does anyone have any advice on options? In the fall I called several local tree-trimming companies that offer to put people on a wait list for free chips if they’re ever in the area doing trimming, but I have never heard back from any of them. I’ve also considered the free compost available from the Fort Totten transfer station, but my understanding is that’s best for a soil amendment, not a cover. My ideal variety of ground cover would be pretty big chips that cover the ground deeply, so they don’t turn into a mud pit when it rains and the dog runs through. At this point I’d be happy to pay if the price is reasonable, but it seems like there are free options available. Any recommendations on sources or specific companies to call? Thanks!
