Clayton Whittlesey and his two older brothers founded Whittlesey Landscape Supplies in 1975, as a landscaping and lawn maintenance operation. They expanded their yard in 1979, turning it into a full-service landscape supply yard, the first of its kind in the area to handle special mixes, garden soils, rock, stone, gravel and compost.
By 1985, Clayton became the sole owner and the company continued specializing in mulch and custom-blended soil mixtures as well as composts and gravels. While some methods of acquiring materials had always been efficient for the company, Whittlesey realized the opportunity to take in green waste to produce mulch and compost for his customers was a win-win situation. With a second location in Round Rock, TX the company expanded again in the 1990s.
Today, Whittlesey Landscape Supplies & Recycling makes many varieties of mulches, compost and soil blends, while also making specialty soils to spec for individual customers. Whittlesey also owns a fleet of trucks from end dumps to floats to haul its specialty landscape materials and bagged materials. Manufacturing and having its own fleet of trucks ensures Whittlesey's ability to give its customers the great service, consistency, quality and reliability that they have come to know and trust. With such a wide-ranging list of product offerings and an efficient fleet of equipment, Whittlesey Landscape Supplies & Recycling and their staff continue to serve a large variety of customers in and around Austin and Central Texas.
