Garden Planting Soil

Our garden planting soil (premium blend) is the best available in this area for your garden.  

In processing this premium soil we incorporate well aged, decomposed bark mulch from lumber mills into the premium blend at a 50/50 ratio to achieve the correct balance of nitrogen iron, potassium, phosphate and potash that is  needed for seeding a lawn.

#2 fill dirt is a pit run volcanic sub soil known to geologists as “Tumalo Tuff”. It has tremendous compaction abilities like no other soil in Central Oregon at any cost. It has been used in the local area from this exclusive source since 1950 for building fills such as all the HWY 97 parkway overpasses in Bend and numerous other fills. It is easily machine graded in lifts of 8 inches or more as there are dirt clods in it occasionally of that diameter has rocks.

Like most Central Oregon soils this one has no nutrient value.
