What is Living Soil? Traditional soil blends are stored in dry heaps that don’t allow for significant microbial life. Living Soil breaks this model by storing the soil under living roots. This means that you’re getting active garden soil that is packed with nutrients and microorganisms.

How to use: This soil is to be blended directly into your garden bed. In a no-till system, this material is perfect to serve as a mulch you can direct seed in or plant transplants. Each of our blends have varying levels of our handmade DirtNerd compost, topsoil, and locally-made PittMoss. Visit pittmoss.com to learn more about this amazing, sustainable alternative to peat moss made from recycled paper.

Finally, take a look at our suggested cover crop seed mixes. These plants can be planted as living pathways or in a fallow bed to increase nitrogen availability, reduce weed pressure, and improve moisture retention.
