Healthy Soil Equals Healthy Plants

Healthy, living soil is the key to healthy plants. There are millions of bacteria, fungi and insects which live in the soil and influence its structure, texture and fertility. What you choose to amend and fertilize with has a big impact on the health of these organisms, and therefore the health of your plants.
We’ve carefully selected the best quality soils: they're locally blended using natural and organic material to encourage healthy root growth—without any green or construction waste, found in most packaged soils.

Green waste can contain unwanted pesticide and/or herbicide residue. Construction waste includes pallet chunks, pieces of plastic bender board, or other tossed materials from construction sites.

Over time, carefully selected amendments build healthy soil structure. And, because no two gardens are the same, our gurus will help you to determine the soil blend that’s right for you.

Read on for a few soil suggestions for trees, shrubs, flowers, vegetables, and acid-loving plants.
