Are you open seven days a week?

What are your hours of operation?

Please see our Tualatin or Clackamas store directions pages for the most updated hours of operation.

Are you open to the general public?

Yes.  We are open to the public. It’s a good idea to come out and take a look at all the products we have to offer.

What should I do when I arrive at your Tualatin yard?

If you know what you want and are hauling it yourself, drive onto the scales by the Sales Office where they will take your order and payment, notify the loader operators, and direct you to the product location.  Drive to that location, and we will load it for you.

If you wish to look around the yard first, please park by the big tree.  Some soil and rock samples are available for view in the Sales Office.

If you need to place an order or for delivery, please park by the big tree and come inside the Sales Office.

For your convenience there are wagons by the Sales Office should you wish to hand pick items.

If you have questions, the guys in the Sales Office are very helpful with answers, suggestions, and ideas.

Do you sell product by the scoop?

Most of our bulk products are sold by the cubic yard (3’x3’x3’) or by the ton.  Bark, topsoil, sand, gravel and crushed rock are sold the yard or unit.  Decorative rock, boulders, wall rock, building stone and flagstone are sold the pound or ton (if over 1000 lbs).

Can you buy the decorative stone in smaller quantities?

Yes, decorative rock is available by the pound or by the ton (if over 1000 lbs).  Some are available by the bag.

Can you purchase product by the bag?

Some products are available by the bag, please call for details.  A bag equals approximately:

  • 1/2 cu ft
  • 55-60 lbs
  • 56 bags = 1 yd (3’x3’x3′)
  • Coverage is 2.75 sq ft @ 2″ deep
  • Coverage is 5.50 sq ft @ 1″ deep

How many pounds are in one ton?

There are 2000 pounds in a ton.

How many cubic yards are in a unit?

There are 7.5 cubic yards in a unit.

How many square feet does a cubic yard cover?

On the average, a cubic yard covers around 100 square feet at three inches deep.  This varies depending on product and compaction rate. Use our handy coverage calculator to figure out how much you need (click here for our calculator page).

Do you offer delivery services?

Yes.  Bulk products are delivered in dump trucks, and palletized material are delivered on our flat bed truck equipped with a forklift. Cost depends on location (zip code) of delivery site.

Can you deliver multiple products in one load?

Yes.  Trucks with dividers are capable of carrying two different products at the same time. Please call for information on truck volumes.

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 and is a decorate or protective covering.  It 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 and is a fertilizer when mixed in soil.

Do you offer Contractor discounts?

Yes.  If you have an active CCB or LCB license, we do offer commercial discounts.  Please call or stop by for pricing.

Do you have any helpful links to Industry, Supplier or Contractor websites?

Yes.  We are pleased to share the links below.  Please note: clicking on links below will take you to an external website.
