Order & Delivery



 Dubuque Mulch Company is set up as a bulk material facility. We load your truck or trailer using a front end loader.  Mulch is based on cubic yards, while rock is based on tonnage. Both volume and weight of material needs to be considered before pick up. Please use our product calculator to determine the quantity appropriate for your project needs.


Long box (8’ bed)
  • 3 yards heaped
  • 2 yards level
Standard box (6’ bed)
  • 2 yards heaping  
  • 1 ½ yards level
Short box (5’under/S-10)
  • 1 yard level
These quantities are all approximations and vary depending on product density, processing size, and truck bed capacity.

Self Service

Customers are welcome to hand load our products into their vehicles.  In smaller quantities mulch prices are per gallon, while rock prices are still based on tonnage.  If you are planning on hand loading material please stop in our customer center for loading instructions.


Dubuque Mulch Company offers local, semi-local and regional delivery. 

If you are picking up or receiving a delivery we offer an easy pay option, free of physical contact and within social distancing parameters.
