Varieties of Soil
Our most popular soil. A mixture of organic Black earth, Peat Moss and topsoil. Great for all-purpose gardening, planting, top-dressing lawns, and new planting beds.
Mix Soil + Compost
Same composition as our mix soil with the added benefit of rich compost to help naturally fertilize lawns and gardens.
A heavier soil mixed with sandy loam to create a perfect blend of soil for installing sod, re-levelling and grading your property. Also used for projects where more than 6 inches of soil is needed.
A sand-based soil. Excellent for breaking up clay soils. Also used in wet areas as it allows for better drainage. It can be used as a base soil where deeper amounts of rich, planting soil are not required, when sodding for example.
These soils have been recycled from other landscape projects and can be reused to fill areas that need a depth of 12 inches or more. Normally installed using small-motorized equipment. An in-store consultation is recommended to determine the exact availability and requirements of your project.

By using our heavy soil mix on projects of installing sod for more than 6 inches of soil. Or use our fill soils to help repair lawn damage by leveling it out. Drainage issues? Fear not by using our sandy loam mix to increase drainage on a wet area can help with that drainage issue.
How to calculate how much earth you need delivered manually:
Multiply the area in square feet by depth of needed topsoil in inches divided by 12. Next, divide the total in cubic feet by 27 to get the number of cubic yards of earth to order.
Example: 30 feet long x 10 feet wide x 3 inches deep ÷ 12 = 75 ft3 ÷ 27 = 2.75 yd3 of topsoil to get delivered!
