Soil Preparation

Brochu’s has the knowledge, products and equipment to prepare your soils for lawns & plantings. We can amend your existing soil, or remove and install new soil.

There are numerous conditions that need to be looked at to ensure the proper growing medium. Your soils pH is critical! If your pH is off, you can fertilize all you want, but it physically can’t be used (taken up) by the plant. Several methods and materials can be added to correct the situation. The amount of hummus, which provides many nutrients, can be improved by adding our organic compost. Another important component is your soils compaction, which could be just the top 4” or include the subgrade down to 18 inches. Lastly, drainage of your area in order to avoid too much “standing” water and “suffocating” the soils.

Contact us and let our knowledge give you peace of mind so that you’re not wasting your time or money.
