How much rock/dirt can my Ford F150 carry? 
Up to about 1300 lbs, (1/2 cubic yards of rock and approx.  3/4 yard of dirt) depending on how the truck is optioned (truck weight and rear axle weight). Look at the GVWR on the sticker on the inside of the driver's door, and subtract the actual weight of the truck from that number, that will give you a close estimate (as long as you don't overload the rear axle).

What does 2 or 3 yards of dirt look like in a pick up truck?
Heaping load on a full size pickup is approximately 2.5 cubic yards
Full size pickup level full is approximately 2 cubic yards
Max load on a large heavy duty pickup is approximately 1 to 1 1/2 yards.

See Calculating Quantities tab above 

 

What is the average depth for materials?

  • Soils   3"-4"        
  • Bark mulches 3"- 4"          
  • Decorative Rock  3"- 4"
   
How much dirt do I need to put down to grow grass? 
Typically 2"-3" depending on your area and slope.  You want to have enough soil for the roots of the grass to grow into and enough to spread out and make your area even.


Can you drive into my yard and dump? 
We can under very dry conditions.  We will not be responsible for any tire tracks or ruts.  We also have to be careful of any overhead wires or tree branches when we lift the box to dump.


What's the smallest load you will deliver?

We will delivery any quantity even less than a yard.  We have a delivery charge based on quantity and location.

Do I have to be home when you deliver? 

No,  we make many deliveries when people are not home.  Just tell us where to dump (or leave a marker...like a garbage can, bucket, wheel barrow, stake)



Do you take credit cards/debt cards?

Yes that is the preferred way this year.  No added fees
