Unfortunately, Mother Nature, sometimes has different plans than we do. When it is raining, snowing, or freezing we may not have our pulverized or regular topsoil available. We blend and store our Soil+ topsoil under cover in our yard and can deliver that material at any time. We can also deliver our mulch, gravel and sand in any weather condition. We do understand however, that you may not want the material in inclement weather. If this is the case, please just give us a call at least one hour before your scheduled delivery time and we would be happy to reschedule your delivery. Remember, that since we serve a large delivery area, just because it is raining or dry at your house, the weather here in the south end of Columbus may be different.
