Your guide to booking a delivery with Wholesale Landscapes

Booking a delivery with Wholesale Landscapes is easy! Find out all you need to know about booking a delivery below.

Your landscaping project is all planned out and now it’s time to take action.


You’ve picked out the best compost and soil for the job, but have you thought about the logistics of getting it delivered?


The last thing you want is to find that out truck can not access your site or you haven’t ordered enough product. So how can you be sure you ordered enough product when booking a delivery with Wholesale Landscapes?


Wholesale Landscapes Delivery

We have the capacity and logistics in place to deliver our products on time, in full, and to specification throughout the Nelson Tasman region and Canterbury.


For most of our deliveries, we work on backloads and resourcefully fill empty trucks heading your way to keep costs down. For our technical products such as biofiltration media, impact protection, and our innovative mulch range we deliver everywhere from Invercargill to Kaitaia.


For deliveries outside of the Nelson Tasman region, we require a minimum delivery of approx. 40m3 depending on the product and delivery location.

How big are your trucks?

We have 3 trucks that deliver locally and we know the windy roads of Nelson can sometimes make access a bit tricky, so here is a guideline:

  • Our smallest truck is about the size of a large SUV
  • Our medium truck is about the size of a Firetruck
  • Our largest truck is about the size of a concrete mixer

How much product do you need?

Figuring out how much product you need can be tricky. As a general rule if you have the length, width and depth you can work it out. We have created a hand calculator for you to use so you don’t get caught short.

Our most commonly asked questions

How much notice do we need to give for delivery?

As a general rule, we aim to be able to book you for the next day if not the same day, however, Fridays, Mondays and leading up to holidays tend to fill up a lot faster. We are not open on weekends so deliveries need to be completed during the week.

Where do you deliver to?

Our local trucks can deliver to most of the Nelson/ Tasman area and if you are beyond those boundaries and in need of our product we can arrange for external freight to deliver. Just ask us.

Can your trucks drive on grass?

During winter our larger trucks cannot access sites over the grass as they may get stuck or damage the paddock. This is weather dependent up to driver discretion so think ahead. It’s always a good idea to have a plan B.

Recommended depths

Typically you need a finishing layer of screened soil of 100mm when working with an uneven surface. 100mm of soil will allow to even out any hollows and give enough depth to create a flat surface

A general rule for compost is to allow for the depth of the current root structure of your plants with an additional 30-50% to mix in with the base. If you’re planting into holes or filling up a vege garden  you will need to accommodate for this prior to filling up

We recommend 100mm (10cm) deep for new bark gardens and planting into bare areas. For existing gardens with some cover, we recommend 75mm-100mm (7.5cm-10cm)

Note: Barked areas for playground impact protection need to meet NZS5828:2015 standards and is calculated on the fall areas and the height of the playground. Please contact us to discuss your barked playground areas

For paths and driveways which are often exposed to car and foot traffic, we recommend 100mm-125mm (10cm-12.5cm) on newly prepared areas due to settling of product.

This excludes preparation, compaction or drainage gravel underneath. For existing areas 75mm thickness is recommended for areas needing a small top-up.
