How long does it take after I place my order?

If you are ordering your Greely’s Gardening Bags online, you can choose your preferred delivery date.   If you order online or via telephone, delivery of Greely’s Gardening Bags are a minimum of 2 business days after the time of ordering, depending on availability.  

Do I have to be home to receive my bag?

No, you do not need to be home to receive your Greely’s Gardening Bag. You just need to simply mark an “X” on your driveway with chalk or masking/painter’s tape where you want your Greely’s Gardening Bag(s) to be placed.

Keep in mind when marking your “X” on your driveway for a Gardening Bag delivery we need a space 4ft X 4ft. Also, our forklift requires 9 feet of clearance to access the location.  Be sure to look up and make sure there are no overhead wires or low lying trees where you marked your “X” on your driveway.

Can you bring the bag into my backyard?

Unfortunately, we are not able to bring the bag into your backyard since we use a forklift that requires 9 feet of clearance and which requires a stable surface to drive on.  Typically bags are placed conveniently on your driveway.

How will the bag be delivered?

We deliver our bags with a flat deck and forklift.  The forklift requires 9 feet width of clearance and a stable surface to drive on.

Option 2:  Choose to use our environmentally friendly DisposaBag Service.  This allows you to use your cubic yard bag to get rid of excavation material (old soil, sod, etc. that you dig out of your yard),  garden waste (leaves, branches, planting trimmings), or non-hazardous household waste.

Option 3: Bring the bag to one of our landscape depots to be recycled by Tomlinson Environmental.
