Your Guide for Different Soil Types

Guide to Different Soil Types

Every landscaping project comes with its own set of requirements, and the tools that make one task exceed expectations may not be the same for another. It’s important to recognize this as we move into spring, as new and ambitious landscaping endeavours are beginning to take shape.

That’s why it’s important to know the right type of soil for the right kind of job.

Loam and Garden

The different soil types we offer are task-specific, and when you’re laying out the groundwork for your next big project it’s always important to see what will correlate with your needs. Our standard Screened Topsoil (loam) is perfect for a basic project such as laying sod for a lawn. We offer the best loam in the city and it is incredibly easy to work with. However, if you do not need debris removed from the soil, and just need a material closer to ‘fill’, we offer raw loam or Unscreened Topsoil, which is taken straight from the soil stockpile and not screened.

As for more job-oriented soils, we have a variety standing by for your landscaping needs. Our 7030 Garden Mix — named for its ratio of topsoil to compost — is perfect for fertilized soil needs. Rich in nutrients and straight from the farmer’s field, this will provide your plants with a perfect place to start. For the more ambitious, we also offer our KINGS Premium Garden Mix, a 50/50 split of our finest loam, mulch and compost, perfect for water retention and allowing your landscaping goals the opportunity to thrive.

But Wait… There’s More!

We also offer Aged Compost, cultivated to perfection and primed to give your garden the nutrients it needs to flourish come this summer season. If you’re operating out of the sphere of home ambitions, you can always get our finest clay, purposefully selected to be ideal as the base for any construction needs.

Lastly, we also have Worm Castings, our own blend of nutrient-rich soil that should be used in a ratio of 1 to 4 with other soils. This is perfect for plants and vegetables to flourish and maintain
high moisture content.

If you ever have questions about our different soil types and how they can be utilized to your advantage, contact us or feel free to give us a call! We’ll be standing by at 403-452-LOAM to help you with every step of your soil needs.
