Buying Your Garden Products Local

More and more, we’re being encouraged to eat and shop locally. There are a number of benefits for this. Supporting the local economy, ensuring jobs for people in your community, fresher produce, better quality… the list goes on and on.

You may never have thought of it this way, but the garden soil you use is actually part of your plants’ “diet.” Flowers, grass, trees – they all draw nutrients from the soil. If the soil doesn’t have any to offer, the plant’s health will suffer.

At BigYellowBag®, we understand this. We’re farmers. We’re gardeners. We love getting dirt under our fingernails. We love nurturing flowers, helping natural turf lawns to grow thick and healthy, and tasting the bounty from a vegetable garden. And because we’re passionate about making things grow, we want to help you get the most out of your Black Garden Soil.


Does that mean there are times when we have to spend a bit more time and money to create the best blend of Black Garden Soil? Sure. Is it worth it in the end, though? You bet it is.


How about customer service? Do we pride ourselves on providing the best experience with our local delivery system, made possible through our network of local soil distributors? We do. We treat our customers like they’re our friends and neighbours, because they are.local soil

Our Premium Garden Products are designed by growers, for growers. We’re not like the big box stores that claim to be local, or claim to be experts, when really they’re run by corporations only interested in the bottom line. We care about your lawns and we care about your gardens. We want them to look the best they can, because when you get to take pride in what you were able to do, we get to share in your accomplishment. One of our ongoing goals is to make the world a more beautiful place, one garden at a time, one lawn at a time, one BigYellowBag® at a time.
