We carry a full range of quality bulk materials including mulch, topsoil and compost, stone products, hardscape materials, and sod. All bulk products are sold by the cubic yard (CY). We can load your truck here or deliver directly to you. Please call the Garden Center to discuss prices and to place an order.
We also offer a U-Fill option for our bulk material, where you fill up a 5-gallon bucket/container. The cost for this is $3 per bucket filled; however, if our assistance is required, there will be an additional cost.
Please choose your stone and mulch product carefully. Once stone or mulch is delivered, it cannot be moved or exchanged. If placing an order for delivery, please be very clear about the delivery location. We strongly recommend coming in to look at our sample bins and stone piles. You are welcome to take small samples to be sure of the stone you are selecting. Because it is a natural product, loads may vary slightly in size and color.
A full-sized pickup can carry 2.5 CY of mulch or ½ to ¾ cubic yards of topsoil.
A small pickup can carry 1.5 CY of mulch or ¼ to ½ cubic yard of topsoil.

Cubic Yard Calculator
To determine how many cubic yards you need, follow this formula:
Number of Cubic Yards = Length (in feet) x Width (in feet) x Depth (in feet) ÷ 27
Simply multiply the three dimensions* together to find the number of cubic feet, then divide by 27 to find the number of cubic yards.
*Note: All units of measure — usually it’s feet — must be the same. There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. Therefore, once you calculate the volume of cubic feet that you need, then divide this number by 27 to get cubic yards.
For curved areas, envision the area as if the boundaries were straight lines and make an educated guess.
