We've purchased this company's Compostost (a soil amendment to add to our vegetable garden), their Custom Mix for our daylily raised beds and their Pine Bark as a mulch. The Compostost can be purchased in 20 pound bags at many local nursery/hardware stores in our area but if you're working with a large area, it's much more economical to bring your own pick-up truck to their site; they load, you haul. At this time a cubic yard (which fills the back of my Toyota pick-up) of Compostost is $32.50, a cubic yard of Custom Mix is $36.00, a cubic yard of Pine Bark is $25.00. They do provide deliveries with large orders.
The Compostost and Custom Mix are great! Our area chosen for a vegetable garden was such poor soil that NOTHING registered on a soil sample taken. We roto-tilled in 2 cubic yards of Compostost in an area 25 x 45 feet and we've got one heck of a garden this year! I'm sick of green beans, tomatoes and peppers.
We planted 100 bare root daylilies (bought very, very cheaply through ebay and thus very tiny) in holes dug and filled with Custom Mix and in under a week they've taken off.
Aiken South Carolina (designated a Garden City and known for it's many plantings) uses only Bricko products in all their beds. I attended a session on "soil" through our local rose club and the speaker was Aikens head gardner who spoke of these products in glowing terms.
