When is the order deadline?

All orders must be received by midnight on Sunday, March 26th, 2017.  Any orders received after that may not be filled.  If so, the order will be refunded.


What zip codes do you deliver to?

We only have the resources to deliver to the following zip codes:

20120, 20121, 20124,

& 22030 (Hampton Chase subdivision)


When will the mulch be delivered?

Deliveries will start late afternoon on Friday, March 31, 2017 and will be completed by Sunday afternoon, April 2, 2017.

We cannot predict exactly when, during the delivery weekend, your mulch will arrive, nor can we accommodate special requests for a specific time. We use a system that routes deliveries to homes clustered together with a minimum number of bags left in the truck after each run.

Please don't be alarmed if your neighbor receives mulch, but we don't stop at your home. We'll be back on another run!


Where do you put the mulch when it is delivered?

We will deliver the mulch, neatly stacked, in the location you designate at the time of ordering. The choices are (as you look at the front of your house):

  • Left side of driveway
  • Right side of driveway
  • Center of driveway

We do our best to place the stacks along the edge of your driveway to avoid blocking garage entry, unless other instructions are provided.

Feel free to use chalk to mark the desired loaction on your driveway or tape a sign for us on your garage door.

Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we cannot deliver mulch to the side or back of your home, nor can we spread the mulch for you.  Please do not leave us "instructions" asking us to do so.


Will you spread the mulch in my yard?

At this time we are unable to provide this service. The mulch bags will be neatly stacked on the side of the driveway that you designate when you place your mulch order.

The CVHS Touchdown Club is running a fundraiser to spread mulch. For information on this service, visit their website by clicking on the link below.

What if I live outside of the delivery area?

We are unable to make deliveries outside of the 20120, 20121, 20124, & 22030 (Hampton Chase subdivision) zip codes.  However, you may purchase mulch and arrange your own transportation for it.  Please send an email to cvhsmulch@yahoo.com to make this purchase.


What type of mulch do you deliver?

We deliver 3 cubic foot bags of premium, double-shredded, hardwood mulch. The mulch is a medium brown color and is the same type of high quality mulch that you would buy at a local nursery.


Can I pay when the mulch is delivered?

Payment must be made at the time of the order. We will not accept COD orders.


Can I cancel my order?

Yes, you may cancel your order and receive a refund until midnight, Sunday, March 26, 2017.  After March 26, 2017, we will attempt to refund you; however, if the mulch is not sold at "Same Day” sales on April 1, 2017, there will be no refund.


Who do I contact for a tax receipt?

Once the mulch sale is finished, tax receipts will be generated and emailed out to you, if you requested a tax receipt on your order form.  If  you are unable to receive them via email, please contact the mulch chairperson at cvhsmulch@yahoo.com to have one mailed to you.

If you didn't receive a tax receipt for your 2016 mulch purchase, please contact the mulch chairperson at  cvhsmulch@yahoo.com.  Please include your order number if you happen to have it.
