Our Soil – Guaranteed to grow everything Better

Hands with soil


We’ve been in this business for a long time, and we’ve heard all of these comments and more. We know that every business says they have the best product, and when it comes to our Black Garden Soil, we wanted to know whether or not it was actually as good as we believed it to be.

So, in 2011, we hired a University Agriculture student for the summer, and his only job was to see how our Black Garden Soil held up against ten other brands of soil purchased in the area. Even we were surprised at how much bigger and heartier the plants grown in our soil were compared to the others.

How come our Black Garden Soil helps plants perform so much better? Realtors have location, location, location; we have testing, testing, testing.

When it comes to getting our ‘stock’ of soil, we don’t just go with the closest or cheapest suppliers- we search out the best quality soil and will bring it in from as far as six or eight hours’ drive away. Also, we’ll purchase soil and stock it, sometimes for years in advance, to make certain we can consistently offer the highest quality of soil to our customers.

Different kinds of soil have different levels of nutrients; one will have more phosphorus, another more nitrogen, and so on. Using third-party laboratories and professional agronomists, we test the soils we’re purchasing from our suppliers to determine these levels.

Once we know the properties of the soils, we blend them to create a perfect balance that offers the best levels of nutrients, minerals and soil texture to stimulate plant growth.

After we’ve mixed the soil, we will screen it several times, making sure that there aren’t any stones or clumps in the blend. Then we get it tested again to make sure that our Black Garden Soil’s nutritional properties fall within optimal ranges. We all know the saying “you are what you eat,” and we want to make sure your garden or lawn is getting the best ‘food’ possible from our Black Garden Soil.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee.


And when you buy our Big Yellow Bag of Black Garden Soil, we are so confident that you will be happy with our product that if it’s not what you expected when we deliver it, we will pick it up at our cost and give you a complete refund- that’s our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Growing Tips

The best way to improve your soil is to amend your existing soil with an organic type soil such as BigYellowBag Black Garden Soil. This soil is perfect for any type of gardening such as Vegetable Gardens, Flower Beds, or for Overseeding and Topdressing your lawn.

Black Garden Soil works best by blending it into your existing soil to improve it. Think of it as a First Aid treatment for your soil. BigYellowBag Black Garden Soil is comprised of a combination of black loam, peat loam, very well-decomposed manure and a touch of mineral soil. These ingredients encourage microbial activity, which aid in plant growth. Approximately one cubic yard in size, the bags yield enough soil for the average homeowner’s use. And just to make it more perfect the chunks are screened out too. This soil is specially blended to enrich and balance the local soil conditions found in our area.
