Anyone who has ordered bulk mulch will tell you that they love the convenience of the material being delivered to their door or jobsite. Getting bulk mulch delivered is easy: All you have to do is make a phone call. Here are a few common questions and answers to understand the process:
What kind of mulch should I get?
That depends. We’ll help you make your decision. We put lots of videos on our website so you can see the different products. Also, each product has its own page with photos and descriptions. Finally, we can help talk you through your options if you still need support deciding… For orders in Connecticut call 860-674-8855.
How much should I order?
That’s our number 1 question. We have a minimum delivery order of 3 cubic yards. After that, it’s up to you. If you have a specific project in mind, check out our landscape calculator.
Delivery sizes vary: In New England we have small truck which are 6 wheel dump trucks that can carry 15 yards of mulch or 6 yards of topsoil or 9 yards of compost. The next size truck would be a tri-axle, which can hold 35 yards of mulch and compost or 25 yards of topsoil. The largest truck we have is a tractor trailer that can carry 70 yards of mulch!
Nope, you do not need to be home to get a mulch delivery; we can simply deposit the material in the designated spot and leave the receipt for you at your door.
When I call, what information do I need to have available?
When you call we’ll ask you a few basic questions about your order (Which product? How many cubic yards? To what address? Where should it be deposited? And finally: payment information). You will have your garden mulched in no time!
