At EARTHCO We Manufacture & Process What We Sell

(Except for winter road salt)


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. You will find no wood chips in our mulch. Similar care is taken in manufacturing our double grind and single grind "bark" mulch.

Landscape gravels are sourced from our sandpits and quarry gravels from our family's quarry in Hants County. All are screened and sized to meet industry standards.


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.

Community Recognition

EARTHCO soil has been an amazing addition to our farm, its high organic content gives us the type of soil our urban farm needs. We get excited every time we have to place an order because I know that the soil they bring will enable us to grow more food for our community.

Rob MacNeish, Farm Coordinator

The quality of the soil and mulch received from EARTHCO is great, even my landscaper was impressed and has been using their products on many other projects since. Before dealing with EARTHCO, I did not realize the big difference quality soil can make. Thank you!
