Composted – Our soil is composted for disease and insect suppression and the elimination of weed seed. The composting process also allows the growth of beneficial organisms, which can reduce Phythium, Fusarium, and Rhizoctonia.

Stable pH The pH will be stable between 5.5 and 6.5, depending on the custom mix you choose.

Consistency – The mix you choose is carefully blended to maintain consistent percentages of raw materials. This allows us to produce a soil that is consistent in texture and pH from the beginning, to the end of the growing season.
