Screened organic topsoil

To make topsoil, we pile and turn yard waste, leaves, grass clippings, and woodchips. We then screen the material, resulting in a rich black soil suitable for gardening and landscape projects.

Because the soil has high levels of plant nutrients and variable pH, customers may need to mix with peat moss or regular black dirt. Check with your garden centre or landscaper on the use of organic soils.


Woodchips are made from shredded branches and brush (from the public and city pruning crews), as well as Christmas trees. The material is useful as a filler for planters or under a 'finished' mulch bed, compost additive, or biomass fuel; it is not intended as a finished landscape mulch.


All prices include GST. Minimum charge is $5.00.

  • Screened Organic Topsoil: $12.19/cubic metre
  • Woodchips: $11.00 wtih GST/cubic metre
