Soils

Soil Descriptions

The following are soils that we have in stock.  We test our soils on a regular basis, which means your gardens have a better chance of producing healthier, more beautiful plants. We have many varieties of soils available to you when you need them. All of our soil products are screened and/or pulverized, except our manure. Better soil means better gardens.

Triple Mix

This is one of our most popular soils. It consists of 1/3 each of the following; topsoil, black loam and manure. This soil is great for flower and vegetable gardens and topdressing your lawn. This soil should not be used straight with evergreen trees as it is too rich for them. It however can be mixed with topsoil.

Top Soil

Our topsoil is a sandy loam which is ideal for grading, sodding and planting both coniferous and deciduous trees.

Manure

Our manure is all well aged, and we do not ship it out until it is at least two years old. We carry blended horse and cow manure and also a mushroom compost.  You can specify which manure suits your needs best, or you can have a mixture. We recommend putting this product on your gardens in the autumn to allow the snow and rain to help work it into your existing soil to enrich it for spring planting. Mushroom compost has the least amount of weeds; however, it does have a higher salt content.

Manure Loam

This product is quickly becoming a favourite amongst our customers. Manure loam is very well aged. It is 6-7 year old manure that has broken right down to a soil. This soil is very rich in nutrients and dark in colour – a great product if your soil is becoming a little ‘tired’ and needs a little extra growing power to produce lovely gardens.

Black Loam

This is a soil that comes out of the boggy areas where trees and plants have decomposed. This is a very light soil and is excellent to add to a garden that is heavy in texture. It is very dark so it also adds visual appeal. This product is also good for top dressing.

Soil-less Mix Blend

This mix consists of very fine screening, manure loam and composted pine mulch. This product stays loose all year round. It is great for mixing in with heavy soils to help with drainage. Great for potting.

Leaf Compost

Our leaf compost is ready to be shipped out!!  This is a beautiful, dark soil, extremely rich in nutrients to enhance any garden.  It is highly recommended for mixing in with the existing soil in your vegetable garden to make your vegetables even healthier to eat! 

Top Dressing

Our Top Dressing is one third manure loam, one third peat moss and one third black loam. We have specially designed this product to make sure you will get a green, lush, healthy lawn without the use of pesticides and fertilizers.  It is quickly becoming a favourite with landscapers and homeowners alike!  For your convenience we also rent motorized topdressers to make the job easier and quicker.

Fill

Fill is topsoil that may contain clay, is generally heavy and is not screened. Good for back filling large areas.
