When it comes to gardening, choosing the right soil is essential for the success of your plants. However, many bagged soil products found in stores are often low quality and lack the necessary nutrients for optimal plant growth. Fortunately, Minick Materials offers a superior option with their Garden Ready Soil, which is not only better quality but also less expensive than store-bought bagged soils.

Cheap Bagged Soils Lack Nutrients

Bagged soil products are often considered low quality due to their lack of nutrients. Most bagged soils are mass-produced and standardized for widespread distribution, which means they may not be tailored to the specific needs of your plants or the environment in which they're growing. Additionally, bagged soil products typically contain filler materials like sand, woodchips, or perlite, that are nutrient-poor and contribute none of the macronutrients your plants need to thrive. Furthermore, these products may have been sitting on shelves for extended periods, which can lead to an additional depletion of nutrients over time. Overall, while bagged soil ingredients may be convenient upfront, they often lack the quality necessary to create truly thriving plant environments, which means more time and money spent on amendments and fertilizers in order to create this environment for growth.

Garden Ready is Made with High-Quality Ingredients

One of the standout features of Garden Ready Soil is the use of Minick Materials Dark Forest Compost, which is both STA (Seal of Testing Assurance) approved by the US Compost Council,  and OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed - meaning it contains only the best quality organic ingredients. This compost is created from locally sourced pre-consumer vegetable and animal feed waste, which is then combined with aged wood chips and other organic materials. This process results in a nutrient-rich soil amendment that gets blended right into Garden Ready Soil, optimizing moisture, promoting healthy plant growth, and supporting the development of a robust root system.

Another advantage of Garden Ready Soil is that it is made locally in Oklahoma, which means that it is tailored to the unique soil and weather conditions of the region. This can be especially beneficial for gardeners who are looking to grow plants that are well-suited to the local climate, as the soil can play a critical role in the success of your garden.

Bulk Soil is More Cost-efficient Than Bagged Soil 

In addition to its high-quality ingredients, Garden Ready Soil is also more cost-effective than most store-bought bagged soils. Bagged soils may look cheap on the shelf, but when we compared our soil’s pricing to that of a bagged soil from one of the big box brands the cost added up quickly. For example, one bag of the most basic bagged soil from a major brand costs $2.58. That may not seem like much, but it equates to $129 per yard compared to our highest-quality soil, which costs only $69.75 per yard. This means that you get almost twice as much soil that is specially engineered for garden growing, for the same amount of money as a basic, no-nutrient topsoil. View all of our pricing here.

Minick Materials also offers price breaks for delivery or picking up product directly from our production facility for quantities over 4 yards, making it even more convenient and affordable to get the soil you need. And with delivery options available, your soil can be brought directly to your door, saving you time and effort. View pricing on delivery and get an estimate here.

Compared to bagged soil products found in stores, which often contain filler materials and lack essential nutrients, Garden Ready Soil is a much better option that provides the necessary nutrients for healthy plant growth. With its high-quality ingredients, local production, and cost-effective pricing, Garden Ready Soil from Minick Materials is a superior choice for gardeners looking to create a thriving garden environment.
