How much mulch, soil or stone do I need?
This is probably the most common question we are asked; the following should help you decide how much to order:
1 Yard = 27 cubic feet (3' x 3' x 3')
1 Yard = 10' x 10' area (100 sq. ft.) approximately 3 inches deep
Note: You can calculate the square footage by multiplying length x width (i.e. 30' x 5' = 150 sq. ft. = 1.5 yards @ 3" thick)
Top Soil Yardages
1 Yard of Top Soil = 80 sq. ft. (8' x 10' area) approximately 4 inches deep
1 scoop = approximately 1 ton
1 scoop covers approximately 80 sq. ft. (8' x 10' area) approximately 3 inches deep
What are the weights of your products?
1 Yard Top Soil = 1,700 lbs.
1 Yard Mulch = 800 lbs.
1 Yard Playground Mulch = 700 lbs.
PLEASE NOTE: These weights are approximate. Because we sell our products by volume, and not weight, and because there is so much variation in every product, we cannot guarantee exact weights on any product that we sell. While industry standards refer to "tons," we can't actually guarantee that every yard of every kind of product actually weighs a ton. So, you are buying by volume, and weights are estimated.
How much will the customer's truck hold?
Standard 6 ft. bed pickup = 2 yards mulch (load should be tarped)
Standard 8 ft. bed pickup = 3 yards mulch (load should be tarped)
What is the minimum order for delivery?
For delivery of mulch, stone, and soil, you must order a minimum of three yards of any material. For delivery of firewood, the minimum order is 1/2 cord. (Please note that there are some exceptions and/or fees.)
