Getting ready to do some yard work and landscaping but need to decide on how to get things delivered? Here are a few things to consider.
How much space do you have in your yard or driveway? If you live in town or have a small yard, the chances are you don’t have a lot of room for a large pile of material. You want to make sure you have enough space for the truck to come in and make the drop and for the material to stay in a pile.
When do you plan on getting the work done? If it will take longer than a day or so, you may want to consider the weather and the effects it may have on your material. If you get a pile of soil and it sits in your yard for a couple of days as it rains, it will turn into a very messy mud pile.
Does the delivery truck have access or space to get the material to where you need it? If you are doing work in your backyard, is it easy to get material back there? Are you going to need to take multiple trips to move the pile from the front to the back?
After considering all possible challenges, you need to decide to get the material in a bulk bag or in a dump truck. Both options have challenges and benefits. What suits your needs better?
Bulk Bag Advantages
Bulk bag deliveries are quick, easy and clean. With a bulk bag, the material stays put in one place. No big pile to make a mess of your yard or driveway and it is much nicer to look at. Your neighbors will be happy you went with the bag.
Because the bulk bags are small and delivered with a forklift, you can have it placed almost anywhere. Have the bulk bag dropped off right in your backyard if the appropriate entry space allows it (will need a 10’ wide entry way). Save time and effort by not having to transport material from one area to another.
Bulk bags can close and seal and keep material dry. You can decide to use only half of the material and save the rest for next weekend knowing it will stay dry and clean.
Bulk bags allow you to take your time on the project knowing that your material isn't becoming a mess. Clean and convenient, your neighbors will appreciate you choosing to order a bulk bag.
