SEA SOIL Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Your Most Common Questions

What makes SEA SOIL unique?

SEA SOIL is unlike any soil on the market today. SEA SOIL consists of 50% fish and 50% forest fines. Fish are "nature's best organic fertilizer" that will break down slowly and be available for an entire growing season. Our company is the only soil producer that is part and parcel of the complete disposal of dryland sort debris generated by North Island forest companies. After all the woody debris is chipped and shipped out as is the hog fuel, we truck the remaining ‘forest fines’ to our site where they are composted for two years. These ‘forest fines’ provide your plants with amazing microorganisms and beneficial fungi that break down the nutrients into a form that the roots can readily accept. Other benefits include: disease resistance, a balanced PH, moisture retention and high organic matter all without the use of chipped wood or cedar. To top this off we compost for two full years utilizing the right equipment while the soil is monitored, tested and temperatures are taken, to ensure a consistent, top-quality organic soil in every bag. SEA SOIL is as good for you the environment as it is for your garden.

Growing Your Soil

Not the Landfill. All of our bags, pallets and pallet wrap can be recycled. Our plastic is made from no. 4 LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) plastic which can be recycled by returning clean, dry, empty plastic bags to recycling drop off centers or retailers and municipalities (curbside collection also) that provide designated plastic bag recycling. Wooden pallets can be reused or recycled at designated wood recycling areas with your municipality.

OMRI Tested

We believe that all soils should have a required minimum set of testing standards when it comes to growing. That is why we contacted O.M.R.I. years ago to start the process of approving SEA SOIL. We regularly test our SEA SOIL for heavy metals, ecoli and even fecal coliforms to make sure SEA SOIL is the best choice for gardeners and growers.
