Mushroom Compost and Soil Deliveries

With all the sunshine and spring-like weather we have been having here in the Ottawa area, now is a perfect time to place an order for delivery of landscaping products like Mushroom Compost and Greely’s Topdressing Soil!

Did you know that you can place an order for exactly how much of each product you need and choose the date you want it delivered? No more navigating through crowded parking lots with bags and bags of soil and compost in your cart. Simply figure out how much product you need, place the order, mark the spot for delivery, and our experienced and professional team will take care of the rest!

Both our Mushroom Compost and our famous Greely’s Topdressing Soil are high-quality, locally sourced products that are certified for organic growing. So not only can we offer you convenient, scheduled delivery, but you can have peace of mind knowing that you are getting the very best when it comes to landscaping products for your next project.

Not sure how much product you need? Once you have the dimensions of the space you need to fill, use our handy Cubic Yard Calculator (located on most of our product pages on our website) to figure out how many cubic yards you will need. We always recommend adding a little extra, just to ensure you have enough to finish the job.

For smaller orders, or if you need multiple products for a job, consider ordering our Greely Gardening Bags. These bags come in three convenient sizes: ¼ cubic yard, ½ cubic yard, and full cubic yard. And if you need one bag of Greely’s Topdressing Soil and another bag of Mushroom Compost, you can have them delivered on the same day and save $25! Considering adding a third or fourth bag? Each subsequent bag you order for delivery on the same day will have a $25 discount!

Our Greely Gardening Bags are delivered using a forklift as they weigh several hundred pounds each at minimum. Some things to remember when deciding where you want your bag placed:

  • The forklift needs at least nine feet wide and twelve feet high for clearance to navigate through fences or other tight areas.
  • We can deliver to backyards only if there is enough clearance and a clear path for the forklift to drive safely to the desired location.
  • We cannot place bags over a fence.
  • We generally do not place bags inside buildings or garages. If you would like to have a bag placed in a building or garage, we ask that you be home at the time of delivery and have an alternate location decided upon in case the bag cannot be placed in your desired spot.
  • Our forklift cannot drive over a sidewalk or down a City of Ottawa path. When completing a delivery, the products and machinery must remain on the homeowner’s property.

If you require a larger amount of a product, we offer delivery by dump truck for loads ranging in size from one to 22 cubic yards of Mushroom Compost, Screened Topsoil, or Greely’s Topdressing Soil.

When ordering a bulk load, it is important to pick a spot to have it delivered where there are no overhead wires and enough space for the product to be fully dumped on your property, without blocking any necessary entries or exits. While we do have several smaller dump trucks, each load to be dumped will still require at least a 15’ x 15’ space. It is not required to have a tarp down before a product is dumped, but we do recommend it if you do not want your product mixed with whatever might be on the ground underneath it. A tarp can also make for easier cleanup once you have used all of the product. Again, you will need a tarp that is at least 15’ x 15’, depending on the size of the load.

Landscaping season is once again in full swing and here at Greely Sand & Gravel, we are excited to be providing the people of Ottawa with high-quality products and excellent customer service, no matter what your project might be.
