How much can my pickup truck hold?

A full size 3⁄4 or 1 ton pickup can hold 2-3 cubic yards, slightly rounded, but weight must be considered. Most full-size pickups can handle 3 yards of mulch, 2 yards of compost or 1-1.5 yards of soil product depending on the size of the pickup truck bed. Never load more than what is reasonable or what your vehicle is specified to carry.

Weight by the yard

Gravel (1⁄4” – 2′′) :  2,800 – 3,400 lbs

Rock (2′′ – 6′′) :  3,000 – 3,400 lbs
Sand (wet) :  3,000 – 3,400lbs
Sand (Dry) :  2,600 – 3,000 lbs

 

Fresh Fine Mulch :  400 – 800 lbs
Compost Mulch :  1,000 – 1,000 lbs
Mushroom Manure :  2,200 – 2,700 lbs
Garden Blends :  2,200 – 2,700 lbs

How much material do I need?

To estimate the required cubic yardage required for mulch or compost, measure (in feet) the length and width of the areas to be covered. Multiply the length x width to get your square footage. Add up square footage for all areas and use the following formula:

For a thickness of:

1/2″ – divide the square footage by 660 = total yards yards
1″ – divide the square footage by 325 = total yards yards
2″ – divide the square footage by 162 = total yards yards

4” – divide the square footage by 81 = total
5” – divide the square footage by 65 = total
6” – divide the square footage by 54 = total

What product should I use for my garden?

For a new garden with no existing soil, such as a raised garden bed, we recommend using our Garden Blend which is made with free-draining river sand, aged mushroom compost, and black bark fines. For existing gardens, we recommend incorporating 2-3” of straight compost into the soil.

What time of year should I apply mulch?

The time of year depends on what you hope to achieve by mulching. If you are using mulch in your vegetable or flower garden, it is best to apply them after the soil has warmed up in the spring. Mulches used to moderate winter temperatures can be applied in late fall after the ground has frozen, but before the coldest temperatures arrive. Applying mulches before the ground freezes may attract rodents looking for a warm winter hideout.

Can compost be used to fill fence post holes in place of black dirt?

No – Compost continues to decompose over time and is not recommended for use as fill in these types of projects.

Can I use compost for my potted plants?

Yes, compost provides nutrients and provides an excellent medium for root growth. Mix 50/50 with potting soil that has a high content of peat.

Can I put compost on my grass?

Yes, compost can be used on your lawn to add plant nutrients and improve soil structure. Apply 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 “ thick and allow the rain to water in.
