How Much do Your Trucks Haul?
Our solo dump trucks can haul up to 10 yards of rock, or up to 15 yards of bark or topsoil. Truck and Transfer Units can haul up to 20 yards of rock, 25 yards of topsoil, and 40 yards of bark.
How Wide are Your Dump Trucks?
Our trucks are 8 - 10 feet wide. Though, they do prefer a 12-foot width opening. The minimum opening a truck may fit through is 10-feet, if they are not turning, however, their mirrors will stick out past 10 feet.
Do Overhead Wires or Branches Interfere with Dumping?
Yes, overhead objects may cause the truck to not be able to spread or dump the material where you require. It is wise to have an alternate dump location available, in case your first-choice location is inaccessible to avoid returned load fees. Do note that most overhead wires, if hung to regulations will be high enough that our trucks can get under them, without the box in the air.
What is a Truck & Transfer?
The truck hauls a transfer trailer, but unhooks the trailer and leaves it at an empty location near your property. The truck only comes onto your property and dumps the material. The truck then returns to the trailer and the trailer box slides off the wheels and inside the empty truck box. The truck can then dump the second 'box' of material, without requiring any extra room on your property than a regular solo dump truck. These trucks can deliver two loads in almost the same amount of time as a solo truck can deliver one load! Filling up an entire truck & transfer is the most economical way to have product delivered.

Can Your Trucks Drive in Muddy Areas?
We try to avoid driving into muddy or soft areas, because of the possibility that the truck will sink, stick, or tip over. If our truck does get stuck on your property and it is not due to driver error, then you may be liable for towing charges. We prefer not to drive on lawns to avoid damage to your grass.
How Heavy is a Truck? ...Truck and Transfer?
Every truck is slightly different, but our solo trucks average 21,000 pounds to 27,000 pounds when empty, and up to 55,500 pounds when fully loaded.
Truck and Transfers also vary, but average 38,000 pounds to 44,000 pounds when empty, and up to 105,500 pounds when fully loaded.
Do You Deliver?
Yes, we will deliver all of the products we sell. Call us or e-mail us for pricing (contact us).
How do you price delivery?
Delivery prices depend on what product, how much you will be ordering, and where you are located. Our delivery prices for most products are pro-rated out. Meaning that the more you order, the better price you will get. Please call or e-mail us for pricing (contact us).
How Do I Order?
We take orders over the phone at 360-876-4701, or in person at our landscape supply yard: 1004 SE Spencer Ave, Port Orchard, WA. You can also e-mail for initial setup and pricing, though we will need to talk to you in person to finalize delivery.
Do You Deliver on Saturdays?
We do deliver on Saturdays for a minimal fee. But remember to plan ahead, Saturdays are very busy, try to call by Wednesday or Thursday to guarantee an opening. Call us for details.
Do I Need to be There When He Dumps?
No, you do not need to be there when he dumps. The dump location must be clearly marked, and payment arrangements must be made ahead of time. Be sure to let us know if you plan on not being there.
How do I Pay?
You can give the driver cash (though, he does not carry change), or local check on delivery. We can also take your Visa or Mastercard when you order and send your receipt with the driver.
Can You "Spread" the Rock on my Driveway?
A Spread is when a driver is dumping the rock out of the back of the truck while moving forward and using the tailgate to help control the flow of the rock. Please note that this service is offered as a courtesy and we do not guarantee results. In certain situations, the driver may not be able to attempt a spread, due to your location. Please note, that for best results you should do your driveway during the dry months.
Do You Have A Smaller Truck?
We do have a 5-yard dump truck. It is the same width as a full-size truck, but is shorter. This truck is not able to spread rock.
Do You Allow me to Pick Material up in my Pickup?
Yes! We are pickup friendly here in our pit. Feel free to come and get loaded or to simply look around. And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to stop in the office. We are here to help!
How Does Your Pricing Work?
A majority of our products are priced by the ton. Your vehicle will be weighed empty, then again when loaded. You are billed only for the product you carry, though there are minimums that do apply.
Can I Load Material into My Car? Or is it Available by the Bag?
We do allow customers to load themselves. We also sell the bags so you can fill them on the spot.
How do you Load my Pickup?
We generally load pickups with our John Deere 624H front-end loader, with a 1-yard bucket. The 1-yard bucket is the optimal size for loading pickups, however you can load more or less than one yard. We also offer loaders with 3 to 4-yard buckets for larger vehicles. The bobcat is sometimes available with the 1/2-yard bucket, or forks for loading specialty rock. Excavators are also available for larger rock, but a charge may apply for excavator-loading. Your load will be weighed, and you will pay for the amount on your truck. Do note that some minimums do apply. Ask a sales associate for details.
Do You Take Concrete/Metal, etc.?
No, we only take natural materials, such as brush, clippings, dirt, stumps, and branches. Please call for more information.
Do You Sell Ecology Block?
How Much Does a Pallet of Flagstone Weigh?
Each product and pallet will vary, but generally speaking a pallet will weigh approximately 1 1/2 - 2 tons (3,000 to 4,000 pounds).
When Building a Patio or Pathway Using Flagstone, What Should I Lay Beneath the Stone?
There are several different options. Commonly people will use 5/8" Minus Crushed Aggregate to pack down and create a solid base for the patio or pathway. Then on top of that will lay 1 - 2" of Builders Sand, to level and settle the stones in. Or sometimes a 1/4" Minus Crushed Aggregate can be used as a 'one-step' process, for both packing down and settling the stones into. For more detailed instructions, check out our instructions here.
When Building a Patio or Pathway Using Flagstone, What Should I Lay Between the Stones?
There are so many options. Most commonly used is a sand, or very finely crushed rock. However, if your are spacing your stones further apart, you may use virtually any stone, or material. Check out our Decorative Stone category, to pick out the rock that will perfectly compliment your flagstone. You can even purchase "steppable" plants from your local nursery and bed them in Topsoil or Compost. These can be planted between the stones, and actually thrive when they are stepped on.
There is also a great product called Gator Dust which hardens in the gap to prevent erosion and weed growth. This is a more costly option, but requires much less maintenance over time. It can simply be pressure washed when needed without worrying about refilling gaps.
