Custom Soil Mixes

Living, Organic Soil at your Service

We create various soil and soil-less mixes for specific uses depending on your gardening needs.  We create lower end mixes of primarily topsoil, compost, and OMRI listed organic fertilizers right on up to soiless mixes which contain (every time we can) OMRI listed inputs. Basic components of many mixes are the all-natural ingredients:

  • Peat Moss
  • CoCo Coir
  • Compost
  • Pumice
  • Rice Hulls
  • Perlite
  • Alfalfa Meal

These products, when combined in different percentage combinations, create different soils (soil-less) mixes – some very light with great porosity to slightly heavier mixes, depending on your needs. We call these “Base Mixes”. From here on, you have two choices:

  1. You can add organic fertilizers such as Kelp, Bat Guanos, Bone Meals, etc. and a lot more (See our Organics section for full list) to create the natural way nature does it. That is the rich soils that feeds the plant. That was God’s original plan and it has worked for thousands of years. Or…
  2. Use this “Base Mix” as your soiless soil for a salt-base feeding program where the fertilizers feeds the plant.
  3. When you use the natural fertilizers program, that basically creates a Super Soil and our name for that type is our “Mile High Soils” line of All-Natural Soiless Soils.

“Beaver Lakes Nursery and Landscape in Montrose is THE place to go for your nursery and landscaping needs. We were in the market for a dump truck load of topsoil and potting mix. We visited their property on Marine Road and met the owners who were very helpful and nice. They delivered the soil to us promptly, and it is of an excellent quality. We look forward to doing business with them again.”
