Product Details: Turf Soil

Turf Soil

A well structured, nutritious soil suitable for both turf or seed lawn starts.

  • Contains 45% organic content.
  • A blend of coarse sandy loam, washed sand, organics, and a good amount of compost to form soil best described as a sandy loam.

We have seen excellent results with this soil!

Adding a pelletized ‘seed and sod starter’ fertilizer will further help establish initial seed or sod development. And please remember when planting from seed, make sure to keep the young grass shoots damp once sprouted with three light waterings per day: morning – noon – and early evening, until your lawn is well rooted in.

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