Our Sand Hill soil comes from the Sandhills down east. It is richer and sandier than our local topsoil. It resembles a sandy loam soil which has a higher concentration of sand than topsoil.
This soil is known for having good drainage and is often suggested for gardening. This soil tends to be looser in nature than topsoil. It is commonly used for Bermuda type grasses.
We sell the Sand Hills soils by the yard or half yard. It is also a base in several of our custom blends.
