Get Your Soil Delivered With Less Mess
Many people that are in the market for buying garden soil or topsoil have the same conversation: “Should I just get soil dumped on my driveway dirt cheap, (pun intended) or should I get my soil delivered in those bags?”. If you’re looking for a way to have less mess after your soil delivery, consider the following…
There are plenty of companies nowadays that will fill a trailer with whatever dirt that they can get for a good price, deliver it to your house and just drop it on your driveway. This is an inexpensive way to get soil, and is sometimes advantageous when doing jobs that don’t require growing plants. This soil is often not well tested and can be pretty terrible. Also, this delivery method can be treacherous. The mess left afterwards can leave you with hours of clean up, and god forbid your soil gets rained on and is washed down your driveway before you get a chance to use it.
For applications where plant growth and health must be taken into consideration, such as garden beds, or for establishing a healthy lawn, this cheap dirt is simply not good enough. Plants need quality soil to succeed. They require plenty of nutrients, proper moisture retention, specific acidity, and a number of other factors (see our High Quality Soil article) These soil aspects are required to be in perfect balance in order for your garden to perform its best.
Ordering soil in convenient bags is clearly a more streamlined approach to getting quality garden soil. Your soil comes delivered in a compact package, keeping the mess off your driveway and allowing you to cover your soil in the event that it rains. This package also prevents pests from creeping into the soil and can help to lower the risk of weed seed infiltration.
It ultimately depends on your application, but when high quality soil is required, and you are looking to streamline the process, soil delivery by the bag is clearly the way to go.
