What Makes Good Topsoil?

The answer is compost: “Natures Natural soil conditioner!”

Natural soils stripped from gravel pits, old farmland or development sites tend to have a high mineral content (sand, silt or clay). The organic matter usually is low or insufficient to sustain good plant growth. This usually results in more leaching out of nutrients from the soil, lower organic matters and a more sterile, less fertile soil.

Compost is rich in beneficial micro-organisms which maintain the soils naturally fertility, micronutrients, soils with compost improve plant hardiness and resistance to disease and pests.

Important Benefits of Soils Made From Compost

Mulches

Helps keep weeds out and moisture in your shrub beds and perennial gardens. Whether it is a finely ground mulch you are after or a dyed mulch to help retain its colour for more than one season, we have a mulch to suit every gardener’s wish.

Red Mulch

beautifully.

Black Mulch

Black Mulch

Dyed mulch product. A spruce/pine mulch mixture has been put through a natural dyeing process to produce a rich black mulch that looks like soil, but helps keep weed counts down. Great for the homeowner that doesn’t like the look of mulch, but wants to cover the soil for moisture retention and weed suppression. This mulch provides an exceptional background for showy shrubs and perennials and is our best seller!

Brown Mulch

Brown Mulch

Natural mulch product. This mulch has proven to be a popular one, due to its soft brown natural look, no dyes and middle of the road price point. The mulch retains its brown colour relatively well, fading only to a lighter brown with the sun. It is easy to work with since the bark strips are much smaller than what is found in the Spruce mulch variety. A good pick for any garden on your property.
