Our compost is made from rich organic material and aged and heated to proper temperatures. The end result is perfect for mixing into beds and large plantings. Our compost is 100% organic, made with all leaves, fruit, and vegetable waste. Compost promotes plant growth by naturally replenishing the soil's nutrients, decreasing the need for chemical fertilizers that can be harmful for the environment. Benefits of compost include healthier and greener lawns, aid to flower and plant growth, and a smaller ecological impact.

Blended Topsoil
Our blended topsoil is a mix of 60% screened topsoil and 40% compost, making it an ideal all-in-one material for soil work needs.

Contractor Grade Topsoil
When we screen grindings, there is a lot of soil that is removed. This is contractor grade topsoil. It is better quality than fill dirt, but does not contain enough rich organic matter to use for plantings.
