With spring in full swing and summer looming on the horizon, you’ve likely got the urge to get those outdoor projects you’ve been dreaming about (or dreading!) completed before the lazy, hazy days arrive and stick around for awhile. Many homeowners in NJ and NY know that there are things to be done to keep the outsides of their homes maintained or to enhance the look of their yards so they can be enjoyed for the rest of the summer months – and now is the time to get it done.
If your plans include landscaping or hardscaping installations or spruce-ups, one thing you shouldn’t forget to factor into your plans is how much dirt you’ll need to get the job done. Sure, it’s not the most exciting or glamorous of materials on your list, especially if you’re more interested in perusing all the beautiful natural materials that can be used to create your new patio or are more interested in the vast array of colorful bushes and flowers that will soon adorn your yard, but without some good ol’ dirt, a lot of your projects will never come to fruition.
There are a number of reasons you might need this less-than-exciting natural material. Depending on what type of project you are tackling, you may require extra dirt to fill in holes, level off areas, raise the ground or build up embankments. Whatever the reason you may need it for, there is likely not enough of the stuff in your own yard to serve the purpose you need, so don’t forget to factor in what you need when planning out your project.
Of course, if you just need a bit of dirt to supplement what’s already there or your project has only a minimal need for the material, you can just run to your local home improvement store and pick up a few bags. The material is relatively inexpensive by the bag, but just be forewarned that it does not go very far despite the fact that you’ll need quite a bit of muscle to start hauling those bags.
If you know you’ll need a more substantial amount for your project, it’s best to look into bulk dirt delivery. With this option, all you need to do is to make a single phone call and the material will be delivered right to your house and dumped where you want it. You’ll still have to haul the material from where its dumped to where on your property you need it (unless it’s all going in one location that’s easily accessible to the delivery truck), but it’ll cut your work in thirds since you don’t have to first get bags of the brown stuff from the store into your car and then from your car onto your driveway and then from there get it to where it needs to go.
