Plants Choice Inc. is proud to offer a robust custom soils program. Our extensive experience with various municipal, DOT and private jobs has given us a track record of meeting project specifications. We offer a selection of pre-blended soils such as topsoil. 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. Our most common blends are bioretention, bioswale and custom topsoil.
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.
To facilitate our customers with smaller jobs Plant’s Choice maintains a small stockpile of pre-blended bioretention/bioswale soil (subject to availability).
Specification sheets and examples of typical lab results/agronomist recommendations are available upon request.
Please see below for a summary of our custom blending process.
If interested in our custom soils please contact our team with the jobs specifications that need to be met as well as any notes on particular specifications that should be focused on such as infiltration rates.
We will work with our team to provide samples of material (if needed) as well as recent test results if we have tested a similar blend. A sample specification sheet is available. Blends will be sent to an Agronomist for testing and a customized specification sheet can be generated for your submittal. Plant’s Choice will then continue to work with your team to adjust the blend as needed to work towards approval. Please note not all adjustments are possible and it is important to consider Agronomist recommendations when seeking approvals. Testing is done at customer cost. Approvals are the responsibility of the customer.
Plant’s Choice reserves the right to update it’s specification sheets at it’s discretion. Please contact company for latest.
