Is Your Mulch Toxic To Children And Pets?
We do not add any chemicals to prevent weeds or insects making our products safer to use in your yard.

While cedar is amazing at repelling fleas and insects it has natural aromatic oils that could cause an upset stomach or illness if ingested.

How Much Is Delivery?

Delivery cost is calculated at checkout based on the delivery location's distance from our store. 

When Can I Expect My Delivery?

We are currently only offering our delivery services on Thursdays. We will call you to confirm the details of your order once we receive it. We will call you again the day before your order is scheduled for delivery to inform you of a 2 hour long window to be expecting your delivery.

No. If you won't be able to be there, we ask that you provide detailed instructions on where the delivery should be made at the time of checkout.

Is There A Minimum Order Quantity?  What About A Maximum Order Quantity?

The minimum order quantity for bulk is 5 yards and the minimum quantity for bagged mulch is 1 pallet. Our pallets contain anywhere from 4 - 5 yards of mulch depending on the bag size and product type. If you'd prefer to place a smaller order (or mix and match a variety of bags) our retail location is open year round. 

Can I Get More Then One Kind Of Bulk Mulch At Once? 

Unfortunately, our trucks do not have a divider so we are unable to do more than one type of bulk at a time. If you would like to get two or more different types of mulch it will be in different loads with a delivery fee per load.

Additional Delivery Information:

In order to protect both your beautiful lawn and our delivery driver's trucks, we do not deliver off pavement. In special cases (loose gravel etc.) we defer judgement to our delivery drivers (Additional information will be required at time of confirmation). 

Pallet orders will be tipped from delivery truck. While this may result in limited bag damage our customers often find that bags speed up the spreading process because they are easier to move by hand.
