Woman with WheelbarrowBlack Garden Soil & Black Mulch

The easiest way to get an overstuffed cubic yard (3’x3’x3’) of rich, loamy Black Garden Soil or Black Mulch delivered in a bulk bag to your home.

Black Garden Soil for:

    ∙ Vegetable Gardens

    ∙ Flower Beds

    ∙ Topdressing or Overseeding Lawns

    Black Garden Soil works best when it is incorporated into the top few inches of your existing soil to enrich and improve it.  A blend of black loam, peat loam and composted manure, these ingredients encourage microbial activity for plant growth.

    Helps lawns too—raking in Black Garden Soil helps break down thatch, and encourages deeper, healthier roots.

    Black Mulch for:

    ∙ Weed Control

    ∙ Moisture Retention

    Reduce weeds and retain moisture while giving your landscape that professional look!

    Tip: Freshen the top layer of mulch yearly to keep your garden or flower beds in the best condition.

    Clean, neat and easy to use.

    No Lugging       No more lugging dozens of bags from the garden center.

    No Mess            No messy pile dumped on your driveway, stores conveniently off to the side.

    Stays Dry          No mad rush to use it up before it rains!  Unique top cinches closed to stay dry, ready when you are.

    No Lugging, No Mess, Stays Dry

    Empty Bag Return Program

    The empty BigYellowBag is yours to keep-- some customers have found very clever uses for them (haul leaves and lawn debris, cover lawn furniture, grills, A/C units, and even storing firewood)

    If you’d prefer not to keep the empty bag, here are a few options:

    • Order again. We will gladly pick up the empty bag when we deliver your next BigYellowBag, and we’ll deduct $5 from your order.

    • Recycle & Donate. Place your empty bag in the BigYellowBag recycling bin located behind these churches, and we’ll donate $5 per bag collected to their Food Pantry/Outreach Programs:

      ∙ Clifton Park- St. Edward’s Church (569 Clifton Park Center Road)

      ∙ Saratoga Springs- St. Clement’s Church/School (231 Lake Avenue)

    • Return. If you are in the Stillwater area, you can bring your empty bag back to us (at 1670 Route 4) and we’ll recycle it.

    Soil & Mulch Depth Chart

    To use the chart, determine the square footage of your area and look for that number to the left side of the chart. Then determine the depth of the soil or mulch you feel is needed and find that number along the top of the chart. Where the two boxes intersect will be the approximate cubic yards of soil or mulch needed. Remember, when using the chart for soil calculations, add 20% to the yardage recommended to account for compaction.
