Discover Which Topsoil or Compost You Need This Spring with the Help of Duke Transport

As a premier supplier of stone, sand, and mulch in Bucks County, PA, and its surrounding areas, we here at Duke Transport also provide high-quality topsoil for all your gardening needs. Without a nutrient-dense topsoil or compost, your plants won’t be healthy. In addition, they won’t last as long or look as good as they should.

But, there’s also many different types. So, here’s a brief rundown of what you need to know to help you choose the right one for your property.

  • Topsoil – Naturally rich in nutrients, our topsoil is cultivated locally in the Montgomery County and Bucks County regions. You can get it either screened or coarse. Screened is more applicable for details like gardens and flowers. It is also ideal for filling holes. The coarse variety is better suited for large-scale ventures.
  • Soil Blends – Here at Duke Transport, we can custom blend screened soils to your liking. With many combinations, we can mix whichever ones you like to create a soil just for you.
  • 7-Year Aged Compost – To maintain its freshness, we turn it every two to four weeks. It is full of every nutrient needed to keep your lawn and garden growing strong.
  • 1-Year Aged Leaf Compost – This is the standard leaf compost. It is available as is or it can be mixed into a topsoil blend. This compost can be used to grow just about anything. It works well on lawns, gardens, or beds.
  • Mushroom Soil – This soil consists of fresh horse manure mixed with straw, lime, salt, and other organic materials. It comes as is or blended with a topsoil.
  • Fill Dirt – Fill dirt is generally used to fill in large holes and is not ideal to grow or nurture plant life. Three to eight inches of topsoil should be placed on top of fill dirt to grow grass and other plant life. We also have structural fill dirt available for building pads.

With a variety of choices, including specialized blends, we’re bound to have what your plants need to look beautiful and healthy. To have superior topsoil, compost, or stone delivered to your home in Quakertown, PA, or another area, call Duke Transport at 215-478-6700 or check out the rest of our website for more information.

Duke Transport Discusses the Helpfulness of Mulch and Why You Might Need It

As someone who does (or doesn’t) maintain the landscape of a residential or commercial property, you may have heard that mulch is vital for weed control and essential for water retention. However, what is mulch and what makes so many home and business owners want to purchase it every spring (aside from what we just mentioned?)

As a leading provider of mulch in Bucks County, PA, and many other surrounding areas of NJ and DE, we would like to shed some light on what mulch is and what makes it such a great material.

What is it?

Simply put, mulch is a material that’s placed around plants and on the surface of soil that aids in both enriching and insulating the soil.

If you use mulch, you can accomplish a variety of things:

  • Keep soil cool in the summer and warm in the winter
  • Help essential organisms, such as earthworms, make the soil healthy
  • Enhance the soil’s drainage and structure
  • Eliminate the stress put on shallow-rooted plants
  • Suppress weed growth and conserve moisture

What’s the ideal mulch?

One that’s not only affordable for you, but that’s readily available, stays in place, is easy to apply, and contains some organic materials.

What type of mulch do we sell here at Duke Transport?

Well, we offer a wide variety of mulch for both commercial and residential landscape projects all over Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and even parts of Delaware. Some of the types of mulch we offer include black and brown dyed hardwood mulch, red dyed mulch, as well as mulch for playgrounds. Either one of our hardwood or dyed mulches is perfect to place around trees and/or flower beds. Plus, if you’re looking for a company that will deliver mulch fast so your landscape project can be completed sooner rather than later, Duke Transport is the company you need to call.
