How Lumberjacks Serves Joliet, IL
When we started our family-owned business in 1993, we had only one location in Woodstock, and we had no idea how many customers we could reach. Once word spread throughout Chicagoland, we could share our passion for the outdoors with patrons in places as remote as Joliet. For over 25 years, customers have been using our firewood to fuel the best fires and our mulch to sculpt the best lawns.
At 75 miles, the trip from Woodstock to Joliet takes about an hour and a half, so opening another location in Lake in the Hills changed the firewood game, again. Not only is our second location closer to Joliet, but it’s a second place from which to process orders and make sure you have the premium firewood you need to start great fires.
If you’ve never ordered from us before, saying that you’ll be impressed would be an understatement. Welcome to our world!
Kiln-Dried Firewood for Sale in Joliet, IL
All fresh wood is too moist to yield consistent and hot flames. There are two main solutions to this problem. Most major retailers dry their wood with seasoning, a drying process that takes a few months. Seasoning wood is nothing apart from leaving it in a dry area until the moisture evaporates. After being outside for months, seasoned wood still contains more moisture than kiln-dried wood.
Moisture levels inside kiln-dried wood can sink below 20%, while moisture levels inside seasoned wood lag at around 30%. Our kiln-dried hardwood also owes its impeccable performance to its density. Hardwood trees, like beeches, are denser than softwood trees, like pines.
Besides, our kilns need only two days to remove moisture, pests and mold. Prioritizing density and dryness, we’ve concocted the perfect recipe for the brightest and warmest fires.
Premium Hardwood Mulch Delivery in Joliet, IL
With so many historical sites in Joliet, residents know a thing or two about presentation. The effort these landscapers invest in their town is admirable, but this effort can go to waste without the best mulch. Mulch is the foundation. You can’t move onto anything else without it. The cheapest bags of mulch are also the worst and the least aesthetically pleasing, containing chemicals that can damage plants and sterilize soil.
Our mulch is a different story. Not only do we offer different colors and textures, but our mulch is made of pure hardwood. Nothing else is in there, so it feeds the soil, kills pesky weeds and beautifies lawns.
How to Request Firewood and Mulch Deliveries
Whether you want our products for your home or business in Joliet, IL, we like to keep things simple. Follow these steps, and you’ll be on your way to starting a big bright fire.
Step 1: Pick Your Premium Wood
For customers in Joliet, we have two popular options. For restaurant owners, we suggest our cooking wood blend of cherry and apple wood. For residents who’re only looking to heat their homes, we suggest the hardwood blend, which contains cherry, oak, birch and hickory.
If you’re looking for fresh mulch, our options are premium hardwood, premium bark, red-colored and chocolate. The chocolate doesn’t taste as good as it looks, unfortunately. If you’re not sure which color will complement your lawn best, just call us for suggestions.
Step 2: Specify How Much You Want
With regard to our mulch, you can order it by the cubic yard, and if you don’t know how much you need, please feel free to use our calculator to find the exact amount. Otherwise, we offer three sizes for our firewood deliveries: ¼ face cord (4’x2’), ½ face cord (4’x4’) and 1 face cord (4’x8’).
Step 3: Choose Pickup or Delivery
We’ll provide an ETA as soon as you call us at 815-337-1451, and you can feel free to leave special instructions about where to put your delivery, whether you want it in the driveway or on the patio. For Joliet residents who want to brave the trek to either of our locations, directions are below.
