Q: What can my truck carry?


A: An average full sized truck can carry 2 yards soil ( less for lawn), 2-3 yards mulch, and 1 yard sand or gravel.

Q: How much does a yard weigh?


A: Our soil averages 2000 lbs with lawn being slightly heavier. 3/4" gravel 2500 lbs, sand 2500 lbs, crushed stone 2500 lbs, stone/cobble 2500 lbs, mulch 400-800 lbs, and compost 500-800 lbs.

These are estimates only, and our skilled staff on site will assist in estimating. All load quantities and security are the responsibility of the vehicle owner.
