New landscaping supply company will allow homeowners to DIY

OROVILLE – Jeff Bunnell will be opening Oroville Landscape Supply in May and will be supplying a wide-variety of materials for the do-it-yourself homeowner.

Bunnell, a retired firefighter from the Seattle area, already owns a mini-storage located at 140 Chesaw Road northeast of Oroville. Near this location he will have a supply of mulch, topsoil and decorative rock and gravel.

The business will open May 1 and its operating hours are Wednesday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by appointment. Bunnell said landscapers can bring their own truck to pick up the materials or he can deliver.

“The business is designed for the do-it-yourself projects. I will try to meet the needs of the community and will expand as demand grows,” he said.

He decided to add the landscape supply to his already successful mini-storage business after he saw that it was difficult for homeowners to get a small amount of material.

“One had to go to Omak for a truckload,” he said. “No one else up here is currently offering this service.”

Oroville Landscaping Supply will be open May through September and Bunnell can be reached at (509) 476-2102.
