Our company is part and parcel of the North Island forest companies complete wood waste disposal method. All dryland sort debris is transported to one site where our company screens it. The wood portion is chipped and shipped away for use as is the hog fuel. The remaining "forest fines" (bark and forest soils) are then transported to our site where we mix them with fish waste and compost this mixture for two years in the approved windrow method utilizing the correct equipment to ensure a good mix, a mature product, pathogen reduction and numerous, healthy colonies of beneficial mircroorganisms and fungi that will assist in breaking down the nutrients in our soil into a form your plants can readily accept.

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.
