Mulch & Compost Loading Disclaimer
While our operators are skilled professionals, if you choose to have our operators load your vehicle, you assume all responsibility for any damage to your vehicle during loading or transport due to the weight of the materials, or spillage of material out of your vehicle. If you choose not to accept this responsibility, you may load materials yourself by hand.

Please note motor vehicle laws require loads to be secure. You may need to secure or cover your load upon leaving our facility. Securing or covering the load is your responsibility.

Material Use Disclaimer

Applying fresh mulch to planting beds or lawn can lead to plant burn. For best results, let mulch cool for 24 hours before application.
