Plants Choice Inc. is proud to offer a robust soils program. Our extensive experience with various municipal, DOT and private jobs has given us a track record of meeting project specifications. You are welcome to choose from the variety of pre-made blended soils. If our regular offerings do not meet your job specifications please consider our custom blending program.
Through the Plant’s Choice Custom Blend Program we would create a blend per your specifications and undergo testing through a professional laboratory (testing is done at customers cost) until the correct job parameters are met. Please review the custom blend section for more details.
All blended soils are blended when purchased and not stockpiled.
Gypsum, fertilizers and/or other additives can be blended in subject to additional blending/component costs.
Please review a sample (blended from current components) with its corresponding laboratory test (with agronomist recommendations) with your supervising General Contractor, Architect, Engineer or Owner. Approvals are the responsibility of the customer.
Specification sheets and examples of typical lab results/agronomist recommendations are available upon request.

Plant’s Choice Custom Blend Program allows us to create blended soils that meet your job specifications and needs. We can start with any of our pre-made blends as a base and modify to target any parameters that your job needs such as percolation, eCe and more. It can be as simple as adding gypsum, fertilizer or other additives or we can work together to create the perfect blend for your job. Throughout the process we can work with a lab and agronomist to test the blend as needed. Testing is at customer’s cost.
Please remember. Blends are blended at time of purchase and not stock piled. If stock piling is needed please contact us and we will try to accommodate your job needs.
Some variation is to be expected due to natural characteristic variation of blend components.
