Having the proper soil composition and texture is the single most important thing you can do for your garden. Plants do best in soils with the proper elements, organic matter, balanced pH and the right amount of drainage. If the soil is not optimal, you need to add to it and create the right soil blend.
We carry a wide range of soil additives and soil types and understand the differences between them. Let us help you reach your gardening goals!

Guilford Garden Center has dozens of ways to optimize your soil. We can give you the real "dirt" on planting for maximum results.

The health of your garden depends largely on your soil's composition. It has to have the right balance of minerals, organic matter, oxygen, and moisture. Knowing your soil type can help you choose the best techniques to enhance its qualities. In central North Carolina, unless it is tilled regularly, the soil can be very hard clay which prevents proper watering and drainage.The best soil in this area is that which is turned over each year with a tiller or other device. This allows important nutrients to break down in the soil, and allows for the ideal amount of water "seepage." Loosened soil contains organic matter that is extremely beneficial to your plants.

Soil blends range from manure to trace element and fertilizer-enriched blends to separate conditioners including Perlite,Vermiculite and Permatill. For best results, you should determine your soil's composition by having it tested. Guilford Garden Center offers our customers a FREE soil pH test. Simply bring in a small sample of soil from your garden (a small ziplock bag will work) and we will be able to help you select the best treatment or conditioner for your garden. It's just a small part of the "over and above" way we conduct our business. Ask us for more information about the FREE soil ph test, and also about the comprehensive soil analysis available for a nominal fee.
