Soil Basics

Each soil is made to have different nutritional values. There is potting soil which is made to suit the needs of a container garden or raised bed. It drains excess water and retains moisture. We recommend Pro-Mix Ultimate Potting Soil.

Top soil is used for the finishing layer in your garden. It’s meant to loosen heavy soils and improve the moisture retention. Garden Magic Top Soil is on that we would recommend and is an excellent choise.

Compost and manure can be included in a variety of different gardens. However, it works especially well to help get your young garden growing. We recommend Garden Magic Compost and Manure.

Peat is perfect if you are dealing with more difficult soils. It provides nutrients for you sandy soils and breaks down clay to make problem soils more manageable. Baccto Peat Moss is our recommendation and should get your soil back into gardening shape.

Each type of soil that we use is equally important for gardening. There are many other types of soil. These are th basic soils that you will find in every day gardening. Be sure and do your research. It is important to know what kind of soil you need to improve your plant health. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. We are available to provide you with more information and give you a look at the different soils, brands and uses.
