    Have been planning my spring & summer garden, but would like a template together with cut out of bushes trees ect. to go on. I have a small city back and front garden with too many shade area’s due to large neighbors trees . I order large bag of soil, every other year due to space limitations. A template that I could copy would help greatly .

  6. Hey Ruth!

    So happy to hear you’ve been putting time and effort towards planning out your 2023 garden 🙂 Are you putting your plan together on the computer or by hand? I found this useful online garden planner, but it can be a little tricky to figure out. It’s designed for laying out irrigation systems, but it works for basic garden planning too. You could alternatively print out the elements from the website to make a nice hard copy of your plan! Hope this helps Ruth and all the best:

    I’m putting in 15- 4’x 8’- 17” deep garden boxes. This spring can you tell me how many bags of garden soil I will need . How much lead time to have them delivered by may 1 st. Thanks

  8. Hey Allen,

    Thanks so much for your comment! Sounds like some exciting garden plans with all those garden boxes! So each garden box with those dimensions will hold a total volume of about 45 cubic feet, which in cubic yards is about 1.67, so each box is going to need a little more than 1 and a half BigYellowBags. Therefore, 15 boxes will need about 25 BigYellowBags to fill them. 🙂 For a quote on that much soil, head to and input your postal/zip code. Once the product list populates, change the quantity to 25 bags. If you place your order soon, we’ll have plenty of time to accommodate a May 1st delivery. Hope that calculation helps Allen, and be sure to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns.

    All the best and happy gardening!

    I have planted several seedlings that I started in late February into the garden soil and many of them have died or the leaves are turning yellow, specifically, broccoli and cucumbers and zucchini that I started from seed. I am concerned about putting my tomatoes and peppers into the ground as i have already supplemented my beds with this soil. Has anyone else ever had this issue. I don’t understand why they seem to be doing worse than other years.

  10. Hey Lynn!

    Thanks for your comment! I’m terribly sorry to hear about your seedlings not doing well! When you added our Black Garden Soil to your garden beds, did you mix it in with some of the existing garden soil? Sometimes our blend can be a little rich for delicate seedlings, and so supplementing it with some of your existing garden soil can help!

    Let me know if you’re still having troubles Lynn, and send an email to with some photos so we can provide some more actionable recommendations!

    All the best and happy gardening!
