Need Mulch?

Buying mulch by the bag is so overrated. Initially, it seems convenient and easy. But, in the end, you never seem to get the right amount and you always end up paying more. (Plus, you’re left with a bunch of plastic bags to throw away)  Buying mulch in bulk at KLR is more cost efficient and a better use of your time. Our experts will help you get exactly the right amount of mulch that you need and at a decent price (Note: check out our handy-dandy “Mulch Math” equation in the Delivery part of the website). If you need just a few bags of mulch, you can bag it yourself at KLR, too!

Sod and Grass Seed projects?

KLR offers Enriched Topsoil for all our your lawn projects. Our Enriched Topsoil is screened soil mixed with all natural compost and it provides everything your sod and seed with need to get established. KLR also sells JRK Grass Seed which is a premium grass seed that specifically designed for our northern climate and soil.

Got a patio project?

We have Class 5, buff limestone, pea gravel, and river rock for all of your patio, wall, and hardscape projects! We also sell professional grade fabric to lay under the patio and wall project. Feel free to ask any questions about your projects.

Fond of Recycling?

Kern is proud to take your yard waste off your hands and environmentally process it at a competitive price. We recycle  loose leaves, lawn clippings, and garden waste and turn it into compost. We take in brush, branches, log, and stumps and turn it into hardwood bark. We are also the only disposal sight in the area that takes in sod and soil. We take materials that county sites do not, such as sod and clean soil.
