We consider organic soil is to be soil that does not originate from questionable sources.
Our soil is harvested from vacant farmland that is being converted into new subdivisions it does not originate as waste that originates from all over the GTA.
Problems arise when topsoil being sold originates from within heavily populated areas. Often topsoil that is homeowners and contractors send out for disposal is processed and resold and reused in other applications.
When purchasing soil that originates as waste you could end up with soil that comes from or is mixed with the following:
- A driveway or garage where automotive fluids seeped into the ground. A lawn where pesticides and herbicides were actively used.
How am I to know if the company I am ordering from sells organic soil?
You might want to determine if they also offer disposal services. This may give you an indication.
