Why We Love It:
The soil that your plants grow in is the foundation of your garden, providing nutrients, water, and support for your plants. That's why we've gone to great lengths to create both our YUF Custom Soil Blend and our YUF Potting Soil Mix, which are easy to work with, full of rich organic matter for your plants, and provides great results. It is made without any animal byproducts from a blend of worm castings, vegetable compost, peat moss and vermiculite making it loose, friable, and very easy to work with. It is unlike anything you'll find at your local garden center.
Why Our Customers Love It:
Our customers love the results that they get with our soil mix as well as the rich earthy aroma it has. Our custom soil blend can be used directly in the garden, in containers, hanging baskets, raised beds, and anywhere you want to get growing. Delivery is arranged to your property and the soil comes in a large tote bag on a wooden skid. Unlike other soil deliveries that gets dumped loose on your driveway or lawn, there is no mess.
We guarantee our soil to be clean, free of heavy metals, and safe to grow your edibles in. The worm castings, which are the primary ingredient in the blend is certified organic by Pro Cert which means you can have peace of mind in choosing this excellent blend for your garden.
The YUF Potting Soil Mix and YUF Custom Soil Blend are quite similar. The only difference is that there is an increased percentage of peat and vermiculite in the YUF Potting Soil Mix to lighten up the soil weight.
Most of the time our soil gets delivered on Saturday morning using a truck with a power lift gate. It then gets manually wheeled to the final delivery spot. That means the delivery spot has to be easily accessible both by the truck and by the manual pallet mover. Therefore, the final delivery spot cannot be beyond a steep slope, up some steps or through a very narrow laneway. Please contact us if there are any special considerations for delivery or to confirm there is a suitable delivery location.
If you are not going to be home for the delivery, we suggest that you mark the area where you'd lke the soil to be delivered to. You can use some sticks, a pylon, or something to indicate the delivery location.
Once you are done with the soil, we encourage you to reuse or recycle the skid and tote bag if you have a need for it. We can also arrange a pickup and ensure that it gets reused for future delivieries and not get put into the trash.
