Landscaping materials tips, tricks and frequently asked questions.

What is your delivery charge?

It is a base minimum of $60. It will either go up with the amount of materials you have and the distance you are from the yard.

What do you suggest for vegetable gardens?

Our Green Thumb mix is our premium gardening soil with peat moss, shale, and pumice mixed in. It is the best soil to use when growing vegetables. As a bottom soil, we suggest either our plant mix or our lawn mix which is just a blend of dirt and compost. 

When building a pathway, what is the best material that will compact well? 

Any of our breezes would be the best for pathways. They compact well and we have multiple colors.

Can you deliver multiple materials?

Yes, we can. We have a dump trailer that will attach to our dump truck to keep the materials separated. The maximum capacity for a split loads is 5 tons/10 yards per product.

What do I use for horse stalls

If you are looking for material to put underneath mats, we suggest our breezes because it compacts well. If you are looking for send to put in the stalls we would suggest our mason sand.

How do you deliver boulders and other large materials?

We load up the requested materials as well as a skid steer and will come to your house and place them the way you want. The charge for that is $100/hour with a 1-hour minimum.

If I don't have a truck or trailer how do I get materials?

If you are looking for a small quantity, we do 5-gallon bucket charges. If you are needing more material, we deliver!

What do I put in a driveway?

We recommend road base or structural fill, because of the compaction of the materials. Another great material would be one of the breezes, because they will also compact well for a hard surface for your cars to drive on.

Do you do landscaping designs for my home?

No, unfortunately, we do not, we just supply materials, BUT, we can recommend great landscapers who we do business with.

WHAT is the best sized gravel to walk on? 

Anything 3/4"or smaller will be the easiest and most natural feeling. 


WHAT kind of dirt should i use to fill holes?

Screened fill dirt with a small layer of lawn mix would be the best for re-seeding the filled holes.
