 When can I get it delivered?

We make deliveries during business hours Monday through Saturday:

  • Deliveries are done by the day NOT by the time. (This keeps your costs down!)

  • If you need product delivered by a specific time we advise having it delivered a day before.

  • You do not need to be home for the delivery.

Where will the product be delivered?

Every delivery site is unique. We can place deliveries on one of these four locations:

  • Driveway (right or left/top or bottom)

  • Boulevard

  • Street

  • Parking Pad

Can the Kern delivery truck drive on grass?

Nope. The Kern delivery trucks will not leave solid surface.

Do I need to be home?

You do not need to be home. (Unless you want to see our delivery guy back that thang up.)

How much can I get delivered at a time?

It’s all about weight. We can hold up to:

  • 20 yards of mulch

  • 8 yards of soil

  • 4.5 yards of rock.

Can I get two things delivered at once?

Sure thing. But it all depends on size of order and total weight of product.

  • There is a split load fee of $36 

  • We physically separate the loads with a series of tarps to secure that loads remain clean.

Try a Truck Mix!

If you’re ordering different soil amendments and don’t care if they’re mixed together, buying large quantities of soil amendments, or want to customize your own soil blend we offer the Truck Mix.

  • Decide what soil amendments you want. Choose from: topsoil, compost, manure, pine fines, Raised Garden Blend, or Organic Grower’s Blend.

  • Decide the quantity of each soil amendment. Quantities are loaded by the cubic yard. We offer: quarter yard, half yard, three quarter yard, or whole yard.

  • Example of a Truck Mix order: Compost (2 yards) + Manure (1 yard) + Topsoil (2.5 yards)

  • We load your soil amendments into the Kern delivery truck in alternated layers like a lasagna. Then the soil amendments are mixed when the product is unloaded at the delivery site.

  • You can pick-up your own Truck Mix at our store, too. The total Truck Mix amount received will depend on your order and the vehicle. This is because most average pick-up trucks can only carry a total of 1 yard of soil and soil amendments.

What are my options besides delivery?

If a product delivery will not work, you can come to our retail site and pick it up yourself:

  • Bring an open aired truck or trailer and we’ll load it for free with the Bobcat

  • A full size pick-up truck can approximately carry:

    • Mulch (two yards)

    • Soil (3/4 yard to one yard)

    • Rock (half yard to 3/4 yard)
