Recommendations fo rmulch and crushed stone?

What's everyone paying for mulch or crushed stone and where are you getting it from? Heralds in Mt Olive wants $33/cubic yard or so for red dyed mulch plus delivery.

What's everyone paying and who do you recommend?

Soil Testing

Anyone ever have their soil tested, composition, mineral content, etc in the Merry Brook, Fawn Ridge area of town?

I have substantial drainage issues with my lawn and will be doing some diy drainage testing to see if it's compaction or a hardpan layer. However I keep reading about clay rich soil that needs to be tilled in with sand and/or calcium or compost, or whatever. I'm looking to find out if our soil is "clay rich" but I'm new to gardening/lawncare so I'm hoping someone has already tested their soil.

Thanks!

Bald Eagle

Has anyone else seen a Bald Eagle in Long Valley recently? Last week (2/21/14) I saw a Bald Eagle circle over Old Farmers school and fly off towards the middle school. I am sure it was a Bald Eagle, it was low enough to clearly see the white head and white tail. I was just wondering if anyone else has seen it. It is nesting season so they often do not fly too far from their nesting site.

Barn/stalls for rent

We recently purchased a home in long valley that has a barn and pasture on the land. The previous owners rented the barn and pasture out to someone with horses at one time. Does anyone have any information on possibly doing something like this? Where would one find information about this this? Anyone with experience either renting out or renting from someone care to share their experience with it? Also, if anyone knows of anyone who may be interested please contact me so we can chat. Thanks so much:)

3/22 Pleasant grove is a parking log

Glad local residents were warned about some auction at the end of Pleasant Grove Road. from Glen Ridge to Schooley's Mtn Road there's cars parked on both sides and people just stop in the middle of the road looking for directions...if this is some farm auction, first, I've been here over 30 years and the only farm I know of off Pleasant Grove near there is the one that supplies the mission, second, if it's a farm, why can't they have everyone park on the farm property and NOT halfway out in the road?
