Has anybody used one of the many free mulch services I see on the internet, like chipero.com? They advertise that the mulch is arborist-grade (coarse-chopped, mixed with leaves/etc, and generally free from toxic gick) and the price is right.

I'm considering getting a truckload, spreading it across my HOA-mandatory lawn, and chopping it up with my mower with the intent of adding organic matter to my dirt.

Running the mower over that would be likely to produce a fair bit of shrapnel and not be any to good for the mower.

I agree that it's just going to be too coarse to use on the lawn, and a mower isn't very safe. Would work well for sheet mulching though.
