  • Rock (half yard to one yard)

3.) Bag It Yourself

If you need a small amount of mulch or soil Kern Landscape Resources offers our KLR Bag!

  • The KLR Bag is a reusable three cubic foot bag that you fill yourself!

  • We supply the bag, funnel, shovel, and zip tie to close the bag! You provide the muscle and sweat.

  • Reuse your KLR bag on your next KLR bag purchase and receive a discount!

  • Kern Pro Tip: If you’re using more than three or four KLR bags it might be more cost effective to order the product by the half yard or full yard. Just saying. Work smarter, not harder, dudes.
