Bagged Soils, Compost, and Mulch

What’s the difference?

A quick guide to soils, compost & mulches. The terms can get a bit confusing, so here is a simple reference guide.

  • Soils are the foundation in the garden, the base if you will. It is comprised primarily of sand, silt and clay particles as well as various trace minerals. There are many types of soil blends that are created for different applications. Garden mix soil makes a great base for raised beds. Potting soil is usually a soilless sterile mixture of raw materials (coir, peat, vermiculite, perlite, etc. ) used for starting seeds, and container plantings. Good potting soil should be porous for root aeration and drainage while retaining water and nutrients.
  • Compost is decomposed organic matter (leaves, small tree limbs, food waste, manure) which when added to the soil improves it’s fertility and supports beneficial microbes, insects, fungi and bacteria in the soil.
  • Mulch is similar to compost, but usually just contains decomposed tree and shrub material. It is placed on top of the soil to keep moisture in, weeds from growing and roots cool. It breaks down over time and feeds the soil too.

We have a great selection of assorted soils, composts, mulches and soil amendments. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you select the right product and determine how much you will need.
