Wood Materials Turf Blend is a fast setting, easy leveling, quick draining product specially blended and perfectly suited for the installation of new sod, turf seeding, or lawn leveling. Our mix of Sandy Loam and composted organic material ensures your lawn has base nutrients and the capacity to maintain them without encouraging biotic diseases that lead to sod and seeding failure.

Soil Builder – $24.00 per Cubic Yard*@

Our soil builder is our base material, used in almost every soil we provide. This is a well cured, composted woody blend that has been screened to leave only the fine organic material. Far too high an organic content to use as a straight planting medium but perfect for using as a base to make your own blend (potting, raised bed, or in-ground) or when needed to add organic nutrients and microbiological life to a site with too much sand, heavy clay, or poor organic content.

Bayou Blend – $24.00 per Cubic Yard*#

Our newest soil is blended to be a general needs tree planting soil. When planting a tree (https://www.arborday.org/trees/planting/containerized.cfm) it is important not to add too rich of a soil into the planting location. Adding organically rich soils will encourage the tree not to grow strong supporting roots and can make it more prone to failure. This soil is blended to provide a higher sandy loam content to ensure proper draining, lower material shrinkage over time, and a quality source of organic material with a broad nutrient profile.

Premium Compost- $38.00 per Cubic Yard*#

Having passed the US Composting Councils TMECC Seal of Testing Assurance (STA), this premium material is used in our soil builder as well as sold as a straight amendment. Because this compost has such a high organic content we do not suggest this as a medium for direct planting. This is a premium product used as a composting starter and soil inoculate for soils who have low humates and poor soil food web properties. Great for adding to sodic and salinic soils for natural remediation or top-dressing large in-place gardens and landscapes that are showing diminished returns and micronutrients deficiencies.

Northshore Blend- $27.00 per Cubic Yard*#

This soil has a very high organic material content and a moderately alkaline habit. Great for balancing acidic conditions typified by many of our Northshore soils. A great blend for use as an organic base as this mix contains high levels of premium compost, soil builder, with just a touch of sandy loam and 5/8″ hammered pine bark.

WM Bioretention Blend – $19.75 per Cubic Yard*#

Our basic bioswale blend. Sandy loam and coffee chaff blended to provide the grading, setting, infiltration, and percolation that meet the geo-technical side of a bioretention soil while premium compost and soil builder allow plants to flourish in the demanding bioswale environment.

The same bioretention soil we designed and provided to the Water Environment Federation for the bioswale installed at the New Orleans City Hall. This is a premium product designed to hit every biological, chemical, and geo-technical note. Mason sand, coffee chaff, premium compost, and soil builder all do their part to ensure fixation of pollutants and nutrient run-off by promoting a more acidic and fungal microbiological dominated soil.

Sandy Loam- $10.00 per Cubic Yard*

USDA classified Sandy Loam, verified from our US Composting Council certified lab, is a mix of the three base inorganic materials (sand/silt/clay) that provide the basis of all inorganic nutrient cycling in a healthy soil. Because this is a mined material, the composition and distribution of the mineral components will vary slightly from the average 70% river sand/15% silt/15% clay.
