Anyone have a good resource for polver. dirt, gravel, bulk mulch (or 3ft bags) and other landscape contractor supplies. There's several in the yellow pages but I want to see feedback from contractors perspectives please. Phillips in Raytown charges thirty a yard for black pol soil, twenty five for a ton of 3/4 gravel, and thirty to forty for a yard of mulch, seems pretty high compared to bits I've heard. Need to get relationships with the suppliers around town. Thanks for looking!

Phillips, the supply company on 350 HI, not a service co.
A business account, as in a businesss checking account? Right on I am going to get into suppliers and meeting as many people as possible next week. I've never been in Suburban but heard of it many times, think that's my first stop. Thanks!

Capitol, my blade grinder (you mean?) It's an Oregon I bought off the net last year. very nice unit for sharpening blades, highly recommend. It's for sale but I'd like to check with my client purchase contractor (bottlefed) to see if he wants it first. If you're interested, pm or post here. Probally ask for one fifty, condition is excellent. I'll post a pic if you're interested. Thanks
Also, I'm going dirt bike riding this weekend with buddies Anyone ride?

Mulch Supplier

Popper , Suburban is a great source of landscape materials in this area. With 1 draw-back, you have to purchase at least $1000.00 worth of supplies with them in a year to purchase at reduced prices. On Phillips he is more of a retail operation I used to work for him a while back very nice guy but will charge his mom retail. Good Luck.

Why would he have been banned? I thought he was a valuable resource to this forum. I don't venture too close to the state line as I am in Lee's Summit.

He tried to explain it to me and he showed me the posts but I didnt think he said anything bad. He was basically razzing a guy giving him a little sh*t. He's a nice fellow though.
