We have a variety of soils at Portland Rock and Landscape. Included are 3-way soil, premium planting mix, compost, and topsoil.

3-Way Soil

Our 3-way soil is a mixture of topsoil, sand, and compost, and it is an excellent option for creating new garden beds, and lawns or planting trees and shrubs. The sand in 3-way mix helps to improve drainage and reduce soil compaction, while the compost adds essential nutrients to the soil. The combination of topsoil, sand, and compost creates a well-draining and nutrient-rich soil, making it ideal for a wide range of landscaping projects.

Premium Planting Mix

Our Premium Planting Mix combines dark humus, aged screened sawdust, fir, cedar, and pine foliage, sand, composted chicken manure, fertilizer, lime, and gypsum. Great for all planting, raised beds, and lawns. Decomposing organic materials like leaves, grass clippings, and ground-up tree material creates compost. It is an excellent source of nutrients and organic matter for plants and can be used to improve soil quality and plant health.

Composted Yard Debris

Our Composted Yard Debris is medium to fine in texture. It can be used as a soil amendment or ground cover.

The Benefits of Adding Compost to Your Landscape

  • Compost improves the structure and health of your soil while being environmentally friendly because you recycle and add organic matter, which helps plants.
  • Compost attracts beneficial organisms to your soil.
  • Compost has nutrients that feed your plants so that you can reduce or eliminate fertilizer use.
  • Compost can be used as a top dressing to reduce weeds naturally without pesticides.
  • With healthy soil, you may reduce the potential for erosion.

Screened Topsoil

Screened topsoil is sifted topsoil free of lumps like sticks and rocks. It can also fill in a new landscape area. Screened topsoil is recommended for use in areas filled to 1 inch or more.

When selecting a type for landscaping, it is essential to consider factors such as plant type, soil quality, and drainage needs. Topsoil, Premium Planting Mix,  3-Way soil, and Compost all have unique characteristics that make them suitable for specific landscaping needs. By selecting the correct type, landscapers can create healthy and beautiful outdoor spaces that thrive for years to come.
