If you live in Southern Ontario communities such as Oakville, Milton, Mississauga and Burlington, you know how important it is to choose an organic growing soil that will produce lush and productive plant growth. The relatively short growing season requires that you pick a soil that is free from chemicals and pesticides that may hinder your gardening results.
Choosing Growing Soil in Southern Ontario
Home gardeners and professional landscapers are equally challenged by the harsh winter climate and soil conditions in this area. High amounts of sand and clay in the soil require a more thorough gardening strategy than mere topsoil. High-quality compost and organic fibre, such as what is found in triple soil mixes, can break up sand and clay and distribute moisture and nutrients more evenly throughout the growing environment.
Cold weather can also impact soil conditions and can prevent new growth in the spring. A proper growing soil can maintain the oxygen and nutrient level in the ground throughout the winter and give gardeners and professional landscapers a distinct advantage when it comes to planning for spring. At Van Beek’s Garden Supply we have been selling organic products such as our original triple soil mix since 1962. You can call us for a delivery quote or expert advice on what type of growing soil is appropriate for your gardening and landscaping project.
