We gladly deliver to New York via the Charlotte-Essex Ferry. Please add an additional $50 for any trip that includes a ferry crossing.
We can take any bulk mulch, topsoil or compost order over the phone or at the Garden Center, and schedule your delivery at that time.
Please note, it’s tricky for us to guarantee deliveries on a specific day/time. During the busy spring season, we aim to complete deliveries within 7 business days. Our driver will call a day in advance to notify you of your delivery time frame.

How Much To Order
For bulk goods, before you call, determine the square footage of the area you want to cover with mulch, topsoil, or compost. Look for that number down the left side of the below chart. Then determine the depth of the topsoil or mulch you need and find that number along the top of the chart. The approximate cubic yards of topsoil or mulch needed is where the two intersect. Remember, when using the chart for topsoil calculations, add 20% to the yardage recommended on the chart to account for compaction.
Horsford’s proudly installs trees, shrubs and perennials! We charge half the cost of what is being planted (ie: a $100 tree costs $50 to plant). If an item was purchased on sale, the installation price is still half of the regular, non-sale price. Please account for delivery costs when having plants installed by Horsford’s, including if the plants are already on-site. Plants purchased at Horsford’s come with various guarantees.
When our team plants trees, shrubs and perennials, we call DigSafe for you before a shovel hits the ground. For each plant the installation cost includes: digging the hole, mulching, and fertilizing and staking if necessary. A professional Horsford team member does all the heavy lifting, and we’re happy to offer post-planting care instructions.
