Mulch, Mulch, it's time to sell some Mulch!!!!

Posted on Dec 10 2014 - 10:48pm

Yes, it's Mulch Time troopers!!! See the Mulch 2015 tab on the website for all the 4-1-1.
The big thing is this year we will be delivering from the Bethany Lutheran Church parking lot, just east of Bowie High School on Slaughter Lane.
How do I sell Mulch, you ask? It's very easy, download the Mulch 2015 flyer and take it to your neighbors, friends and family who you know have grass, plants, or any sort of landscaping to maintain. Be sure to wear your Class A when you go selling. You'd be surprised about who needs mulch ... and the last thing you need to ask once you get an order is - "Are you sure you ordered enough? Because it's better to get it from me since I will deliver and I can save you a trip to the big box stores."
