Where can I buy landscaping soil for sale near me?

RSI supplies bulk Landscaper’s Soil Mix to Georgia including Metro Atlanta. We are essentially a bulk landscape supply yard meant to provide contractors, landscapers, homeowners, and other professionals with a bulk, loose soil option instead of buying by the bag. Often 50 lb bags of soil are not enough for your landscaping project. Furthermore, you don’t have enough room to haul multiple bags or make trips to pick up enough. Finally, the price of bulk Landscaping Mix compared to potting soil or topsoil by the bag can end up saving you money. Delivery with a dump truck from one of our multiple locations can save you time, money, and a lot of work. Also, any amount can be delivered from 1 ton or 1 cubic yard (less than this amount may be best by the bag), and can usually be dumped near or on your project saving even more effort of placing the soil. RSI supplies Landscaping Soil Mix to areas including Athens, Gainesville, Cumming, Alpharetta, Lawrenceville, Buford, Winder, Commerce, Milton, Sandy Springs, and the surrounding areas.

What is Landscaping Planting Soil Mix made of?

Landscaping Planting Mix is composed of a blend of natural screened and washed sand, rich loamy topsoil, pine fines, and mature compost. The blend consists of a higher percentage of organic material to produce a rich, fertile soil that is ideal of planting. The sand allows for proper drainage and the soil can also be used as a soil conditioner for high clay content soils in the surrounding interface.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions about Landscaper’s Soil Mix? We have answers!

Landscaper’s planting mix or Landscape Mix is a soil blended specifically for planting trees, shrubs, grass, flowers, and gardening.  It is different than topsoil because it contains a high amount of organic material along with sand to help retain moisture and provide nutrients.  The combination of soil components allows this soil blend to be well-drained to help roots establish quickly without disease. 

Buying planting soil or planting mix by the bag at the local hardware store can become expensive if you need a lot.  Local landscaper suppliers, like River Sand, Inc., blend, supply, and deliver bulk soils to your project or house.  Many people do not realize how much soil it takes to fill a garden or the area next to the sidewalk/porch.  You can purchase soil by the ton or cubic yard and save money!

Good planting mix contains a combination of sand, soil, and compost.  The quality of the ingredients are a key part of a quality landscaper’s planting mix.  The ratio at which each component is blended also is critical to retain moisture, provide nutrients, and drain well.  Planting mix refers to a soil, unlike potting soil, that is best used in your landscaping and gardening areas. 

Landscaper’s Planting Mix or PerfectSoil is a great soil media for planting flowers in your landscaped areas.

No, soils are sourced and blended differently by manufacturers and suppliers.  Typically, topsoil is soil excavated and sold directly as “good dirt” (this is not the case with RSI’s Topsoil).  Potting Soil contains a mixture of perlite, dolomite, peat, or other materials best-suited for potted plants.  It is light and drains rapidly.  Garden Soil can refer to a material that is very similar to Topsoil or Landscape Mix.  Landscape Mix often has a higher percentage of organic material and sand to promote adequate drainage along with moisture and nutrient retention.  Landscape Mix is better suited for planting established plants while topsoil is better for gardening and seeding/sodding a lawn.
