Mulch Delivery FAQ and Information
JK Enterprise Landscape Supply, LLC provides commercial and residential delivery throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area for all of our products. Bulk materials such as aggregates, stones, topsoil, and mulches are usually delivered in dump trucks. The size of the truck used for delivery depends upon the quantity ordered. We can accommodate any quantity request, with some minimum requirements. Standard delivery quantity for mulches is usually in the 10-30 cubic yard range, delivered in a single axle or tri-axle dump truck. We can also deliver up to 80 cubic yards by tractor trailer or walking floors. Topsoil blends and heavier bulk aggregates are usually delivered in tri-axle dump trucks in 7-20 cubic yards or 7-20 ton loads.
Bagged products and natural stones are usually delivered on a pallet using a flatbed truck with a forklift on the back. The palletized materials are offloaded with the forklift and placed on a hard surface. Standard delivery is usually one or more pallets of landscape materials.

When do we deliver?
We deliver Monday through Friday 7am to 6pm.
Do I need to be home to accept delivery?
No, you can leave written instructions on the front door, and or written notes on the delivery page. You can mark the area with chalk, “X” in duct tape, tarp, cone or upside down trash can with a sign on it. This gives the driver a visual and will make the delivery process easier.
Our drivers are instructed to go to the front door in absence of delivery notes.
HOW WILL I KNOW MY DELIVERY IS ON THE WAY?
Will you deliver off the pavement?
This is very risky, and can cause severe damage to your property. If the ground is soft, the truck may get stuck, causing damage to personal property. The sides of an asphalt driveway can be crushed, when leaving the safety of a paved surface. The professional driver will make this judgement call at the time of delivery. In general, it is safer for everyone to have the trucks delivering on pavement.
Do you deliver when it rains?
It is almost inevitable that there will be some kind of precipitation event when you are ready for your order. It never fails. We deliver rain or shine and it does not hurt our products.
What’s the difference between bulk and bagged topsoil?
Bulk topsoil is native to the area. It’s derived from excavation sites from local neighboring areas surrounding Washington DC. At JK Enterprise we screen our soil after it is sourced. The screening process will eliminate most large materials such as rocks, sticks and large clumps of grass. From there it is stored at one of our outdoor facilities in large piles awaiting delivery. As it sits in these piles, the moisture caused by natural elements may make clumps (even after it’s screened). These clumps can easily be broken apart with a shovel or rake. Bagged topsoil is somewhat manufactured.
