Tips & FAQs

Installing pavers and walls
Installing these products yourself is easier than you might think, but we do have many resources to help you along. Most companies have installation guides as well as catalogues which are free. We also host many Do It Yourself seminars throughout the year where you can watch a pro install interlock and walls in person. They will be happy to answer any questions you may have!

Can you place my natural stone where I want it?

In general, we do not place material anywhere but your driveway as the boom truck has only a 15 ft reach from the road. If you want your material placed somewhere in that area there is an additional charge based on the weight of the rock, as it requires a lot of time and skill on the part of our drivers to place your rocks safely and correctly.

How do I figure out how much soil/gravel I need?
The formula used to calculate cubic yards is as follows:

Do you rent equipment?

Do you do installations?
We do not do any installation or on site work beyond delivering you your product. We also do not recommend any contractors, as we have not seen their work.

We do not sell any plants (other than grass seed and sod) – just the soil they need to grow in!
