CU-Structural Soil

Minick Materials is a licensed CU-structural soil supplier. This specialty soil was developed by Cornell University researchers to lengthen the lifespan of trees and pavement. It provides adequate soil volumes for tree roots under paved areas. This urban garden allows trees the ability to thrive even in heavily-trafficked areas due to its ability to retain moisture which allows roots to grow. The moisture retention allows the plant roots to continue to grow so that new development does not have to mean removing healthy trees from the area. At the same time, the pavement is not disrupted by the tree roots, allowing you to maximize your investment and minimize your need for sidewalk or pavement repairs.

For more than 10 years, this specifically engineered soil has been used in applications such as:

  • Pedestrian paving
  • Sidewalks
  • Parking lots
  • Planting islands

Our soil experts can discuss the benefits of CU-structural soils and whether they are right for your pavement job.


Our signature compost is made from organic matter and is customarily used to amend soil. At our licensed composting facility, we mix compost into our soils to deliver the best structure, increase nutrient content and improve drainage. Our compost will condition and amend your soil by delivering a slow release of nutrients and minerals into the ground, while ensuring the soil is filled with air.

Other Soils

We also offer specific soils for building pads, projects, and more. If you need a competitive priced and readily available soil for filling a large project, we’ve got it! If you need a specially-formulated soil perfect for your specific crops or needs, we’ve got it too!
