Dirt isn't just dirt! Each type of soil we offer has it's own composition and serves a specific purpose, so make sure you select the right soil before starting your project. Bluemel's carries specific soils for pitching water away from foundations, planting grass seed and sod, as well as starting and adding to your garden. Choosing the right soil for your need will make all of the difference. Not sure which soil to go with? No problem. Just give us a call!
PREMIUM BLENDED SOIL
Consists of 70% Brown Clay Soil, 30% Black Soil. This is a rougher grade topsoil used for seeding and sodding larger areas. Heavy enough so you're not watering all day, but light enough for proper drainage and seed/ root germination. A perfect mix for those who aren't picky about soil.
A rich mixture of special select soil, Black Peat, Aged Composted Cow Manure, and Washed Play Sand. This mix is an upgrade from our topsoil, and is a good alternative to our Purple Cow Raised Bed Mix.
