Essential Property Maintenance is a full service landscaping contractor based out of Calgary, AB.  We specialize in the delivery and spreading of several different types of landscaping materials for properties of all sizes.  We can deliver and spread soils (including loam and compost), mulch, sand, gravel, decorative rocks or gravel and more.

Landscaping projects and property clean ups often require the addition of more landscaping materials including soil, sand, gravel, mulch and more.  When you hire a landscape supply company to deliver the materials the delivery charges for their large trucks are often more than the landscape materials and you still have to handle the materials once they are dumped, yourself.

Whether you’d like a fresh layer of bark mulch on all of your garden beds to give them a nice uniform look, or you’d like to have gravel dumped and spread for a new parking pad the team at Essential Property Maintenance will be able to help!

Minimum Material Delivery/Spreading = 4 Yards.  Most landscape materials are sold and delivered by the yard.  1 yard of soil spread about an 1″ thick should cover approximately 324 square feet.  We can arrive at your location with approximately 4-5 yards of material in our dumping trailer and orders larger than that will need to be delivered via a dump truck.  Our estimates include delivery costs, spreading (approx 1 hr per yard) and a clean up of the delivery area.

Preparation Of Beds:  Prior to spreading new material on old garden beds they should be weeded and cleared out of any brush or debris.  Landscape cloth can be laid down if necessary.  Shrubs and surrounding tree cover should be trimmed back to prevent the organic debris from falling in your garden.  We are happy to add bed preparation and clean up into your estimate.
If you just want landscape materials delivered to install on your own you should contact your nearest landscape supply company and inquire about delivery.

The Essential Property Maintenance Landscape Material Delivery and Spreading Service Process:

There is more to landscape materials than just spreading dropping them off and spreading them out.  You need to know about the types of soils and mulches, the grades of gravel, their benefits and when they are appropriate to use for each property.

  1. We start with our initial consultation.
  2. We will listen to your requirements, making any necessary suggestions.
  3. We will work with you to determine the type of materials you’d like spread.
  4. We will take accurate measurements to determine how many yards will be needed.
  5. We show up on the scheduled day of delivery and spread your materials as promised.

How Much Does Delivery and Spreading Mulch Cost?

The final cost of delivering and spreading landscaping materials on your property will be determined by the surface area and how much material we’re going to need to deliver and spread.  The type of materials you choose will also affect the price and lastly, the most expensive portion is the labor to install and spread your material.  This usually means hand loading and dumping wheelbarrows full of material and spreading it if we cannot use a machine.

If we can dump the materials close to your garden beds for minimal handling then we’re going to be able to complete your job faster.  If we need to move the material with a wheelbarrow or a skid steer over a longer distance (from the front to back of your home for example) then the cost of your labor will go up because we’re spending more time.

We’ll only be able to provide you with an accurate estimate for spreading mulch in your gardens after a thorough site inspection.

Slinger Truck Delivery – For very large landscape material orders (10 yards+) with difficult to access properties such as tight backyards or other areas traditional dump trucks, dump trailers or equipment cannot access then a slinger truck might be an option.  The slinger truck can sling the materials (usually sand/soil/mulch) right to where it’s needed.  We can coordinate this service for you with an average cost of $140 per hour, this doesn’t include your material.  While it sounds expensive, the slinger truck method of spreading materials can save some property owners significant money in labor costs.  This service needs to be booked well in advance!
