WHAT IS A TRACTOR BUCKET?

  • A TRACTOR BUCKET IS HOW WE MEASURE OUR PRODUCTS
  • 1 TRACTOR BUCKET OF MULCH/TOPSOIL/MUSHROOM COMPOST = “ROUGHLY” 1 YARD
  • 1 TRACTOR BUCKET OF STONE/SAND/GRAVEL = “ROUGHLY” 1 TON

HOW MUCH AREA DOES 1YD OF MULCH COVER?

  • 10 X 10 SURFACE / 3 IN DEEP 
  • 20 X 20 SURFACE / 2 IN DEEP
  • 30 X 30 SURFACE / 1 IN DEEP

HOW DO I FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH MATERIAL I NEED?

  • MEASURE THE LENGTH, WIDTH, AND DEPTH OF THE AREA
  • MULCH/TOPSOIL: LENGTH X WIDTH X DEPTH = # / 327 = # YARDS
  • STONE/GRAVEL: LENGTH X WIDTH X DEPTH = # /327 X 1.5 = # TONS
  • THERE IS A MATERIAL CALCULATOR ON OUR WEBSITE ALSO!

WHEN WILL I GET MY PRODUCT?

  • AFTER CALLING AND ORDERING, YOU CAN REQUEST A DATE WHEN YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR MATERIALS TO BE DELIVERED. WE WILL WORK WITH YOU TO GET THEM OUT WHEN REQUESTED.
