Do you offer delivery services?
Yes.  Bulk products are delivered in dump trucks.  Palletized materials are delivered on our flat bed truck equipped with a forklift. The cost depends on mileage to the delivery site.

How much does a cubic yard of gravel weigh?
This varies depending on the type of gravel–average weights are 2200 pounds to 2600 pounds.

How much do the decorative rock pallets weigh?
Average pallet weights can vary by supplier or quarry, but average from 1.5-2.5 tons.

Do I need mulch or compost?
Mulch is decayed yard debris which prevents weeds.  It is also a decorate or protective covering.  Mulch prevents loss of water, soil erosion, crusting of soil surface, soil compaction, and growth of weeds.  It aids in cooler soil in summer, warmer soil in winter, more plant roots, and improves soil nutrients.

Compost is manure-based.  It is a fertilizer when mixed in soil.
