We take pride in securing the right raw materials; compost (the organic content), including blueberry compost and leaf compost, proper gradations of sand and a small percentage of clay or silt to create premium quality organic soil mixes.
Premium quality screened blueberry compost and leaf compost for garden amendments and top dressing. Our blueberry compost is naturally sourced from blueberry processors and our leaf compost is sourced from HRM.
We use kiln dried lumber to manufacture our premium quality colour enhanced mulch at our Sackville processing site. Similar care is taken in manufacturing our double grind and single grind "bark" mulch and our "natural" mulch.
We often get requests for non-standard products, whether soil mixes or ground material. Let us know what you require and we will let you know if we can do it.
