Mulch, Rock & Hardgoods



Our premium black dirt is not pulverized.  It is loose and easily crumbled making it excellent to work with in your yard and garden.

We have options to also mix your topsoil with mushroom compost or other soil amendments upon your request, saving you time, money and your back.


Our bulk mulch is a shredded double processed hardwood bark that is easy to apply to all areas of your yard and garden.  The insect free mulch is a dark brown color.

Bagged mulches are also available in hardwood and other options.

Don’t forget a pre-emergent herbicide under your mulch.  We love products like Treflan or Preen to keep the weeds to a minimum.


Our bulk rock is 1½” multi colored River Rock.  Larger and smaller options may also be available in bulk upon request.

Bagged rock is also available in other options.


Varieties of natural stone from all over the country that can be used to create walls, pathways, steps and other outdoor natural applications can be found in our nursery.

Boulders and Cobblestone options in addition to flagstone
