    Default Soil delivery in Eagle River

    I am looking for tips on locations for buying bulk soil for vegetable gardening in Eagle River. I do compost, but that doesn't provide a great quantity.

    Thanks for any tips.

    Last time I needed some sand and gravel I called Little Bit Enterprises, local owned business and he did a good job. I would guess he would know where to get the soil you want and will deliver it.

    I went with Susitna Organics and have been very pleased with the soil quality. I have no skill or experience and my garden has far outperformed that of a family member with more knowledge but poorer soil.

    I got their garden soil, which is a mix of topsoil and compost. I think it's a 50/50 blend, but I don't recall offhand.
