Our enterprise known as Crown Sand & Gravel was established in 1963 in West Bloomfield. For over 50 years, we have been in the business of serving customers in this township and the surrounding municipalities of Oakland County. We originally started out as an individually owned trucking company. While we have certainly grown into the leading landscape supply, mulch delivery and dirt delivery company in the area, our business is the furthest thing from corporate. Passed down to the next generation, it remains in the hands of family. A family mindset is part of the key to our success. Because houses and property layouts are so diverse, even in the same city, the needs of each owner are going to be very different from each other. A successful landscape supply company is one that takes the time to get to know those preferences, and who has the knowledge and experience to give the most capable advice as to how to go about improving their outside property. Our key services and products include
Having this business passed down from a previous generation, our current ownership has amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience in each of these products. Also, we have carried with us the work ethic necessary to keep this company thriving for decades to come. Our rating from the Better Business Bureau is as high as you can get, an A+. To this day, we have had no complaints made against us.
Sand and gravel have several uses. They have utility purposes, decorative purposes, or sometimes even a combination of the two. We have six different types of gravel, and can guarantee that one of them will fill the function that you are in need of. Gravel makes for an extremely effective drainage system, which can be used for septic systems, driveways, walkways, and more. Also, it can be more eye appealing than cement on many landscapes. We also carry a grade of crushed concrete that makes for a great alternative to smooth cement. It is a recycled product, made from concrete extracted from previous uses. It is effective, attractive, and environmentally friendly.
In addition, sand and gravel can also be used for recreation. Do you need a sandbox for your young children? A beach by waterfront property can look beautiful, but can also be fun to lay out on, or make sand art. Pea gravel is often used on playgrounds to reduce the impact of a fall, making it safer for your children to play.
If you are looking for mulch, we are also the place to call. Mulch serves a vital function in nourishing your plants, preventing weed growth, keeping your topsoil moist, preventing it from being washed away, and moderating its temperature, which promotes a healthy growth cycle. Crown Sand & Gravel carries five different grades of mulch, four of them from hardwoods, and one from cedar. They are all of a different color, and we can help you determine which one will be the best fit for your individual landscape. When buying mulch from us, you are also helping the Michigan economy in more ways than one. All of our landscape mulch comes from the trees of northern Michigan.
Topsoil is an extremely valuable commodity, both in nature and in cultivated landscapes, lawns, and gardens. In nature, it is generally the top few inches of soil, where a lot of the biological activity takes place. It takes nature 500 years to produce an inch of topsoil. However, at Crown Sand & Gravel, we make our own topsoil from a 50/50 blend of natural and a manufactured brand of dirt fortified with organic matter. Together with our mulches, you can be certain your shrubs and flowers will be thoroughly nourished with a safeguard of nutrients even when weather conditions are not optimal for growth. Crown Sand & Gravel’s dirt delivery will bring the needed amount of this nutrient-rich product out to you. If you are not a do-it-yourselfer, we can spread it for you for an extra charge.
At Crown Sand & Gravel, we aim to keep every customer that we acquire. Part of keeping a customer happy is not just giving them the best product, but also not making them wait. Punctuality is one of the things our company prides itself on. Regardless of which of our products you require, our fleet of trucks can bring them to you quickly, sometimes even the same day, depending on scheduling. Also, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to bring them to our attention. Our knowledge is matched only by our willingness to please. If you do not want to take our word for it, feel free to read our reviews. It would be certain to erase any doubt you might have about who to call for your landscape supply products.
