Do you have any tips for ordering topsoil?
Topsoil weighs about 2,000 lbs per cubic yard. One cubic yard equals about 40 bags of soil found in a garden center or 5-6 wheelbarrows. If you purchase topsoil but don’t immediately spread it, cover it so it doesn’t get wet, which will make it clumpy and difficult to work with.
Do you have any tips for ordering firewood?
Our firewood is approximate 18″ in length. Beware if you have a wood stove that only will fit smaller pieces.
If you store your wood outdoors, it’s best to keep it covered. Split wood will absorb rain or snow, making it difficult to light.
It’s best not to store your firewood too close to your house, as the wood over time can become a sanctuary for insects.
What is the minimum amount of mulch or topsoil I can order?
