Product Details: Bed Builder Soil

Bed Builder Soil

The ideal and economical solution for filling the bottom of large garden beds, or shaping bermed-up shrub beds.

  • Contains 33% organic content.
  • Contains screened dirt, washed sand, organics, and some compost. Best described as a sandy loam.

As a stand-alone growing media, this soil will perform best by amending the top 6” layer with our Compost or GrowMix Garden Soil that contain additional nutrients – or adding 5 pounds of 6-8-6 pelletized fertilizer per yard to enrich. With either addition, Bed Builder will perform well and support strong root development and plant growth.

PLEASE NOTE: due to the screened dirt content, this soil will contain some weed seed. Please seed, turf, or mulch your installation as soon as possible to help prevent weeds!

We test our soils! Yes, this soil closely meets the 2P planting medium requirements as outlined in the B.C. Landscape Society Spec.
