Our products


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.

landscape gravels

Landscape gravels are sourced from our sandpits and quarry gravels from our quarry in Hants County.

All are screened and sized to meet industry standards.
