Dr. Earth® premium grade soils are sustainably made from clean and natural ingredients. They are certified organic, do not contain cheap fillers found in many other soils, and contain no GMO’s. Our soils provide long lasting benefits by improving soil texture and drainage properties. They promote strong, healthy growth and help break up compacted clay soil. One of the most important benefits you’ll find with Dr. Earth® soil is that it holds up to temperature extremes and other adverse environmental factors. Think of the amount of time a bag of soil sits in the heat, sealed in plastic, before it is used. Such conditions can kill the beneficial microbes before the bag is even open, but not Dr. Earth® premium soils!
Our ground-breaking technology protects our soils. Every bag is packed with three unique technologies found ONLY in Dr. Earth soils. Let’s take a closer look at these technologies:
TruBiotic® – Nature’s intelligence pure & simple
In 1991, Dr. Earth invented the concept of infusing fertilizers and soils with probiotics which revolutionized the lawn and garden industry. Probiotics are beneficial soil microbes and mycorrhizae, utilizing “Nature’s Intelligence.” Healthy soil is full of beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi that can fight off pathogens that harm plants.
All organic materials must be digested through microbial digestive enzymes for nutrients to be available to the plant roots. Without microbes, organic nutrients would simply sit in the soil and add nothing to plants. Soil microbes also help physically change the soil structure. They bind soil particles to better facilitate water and air infiltration. Different microbes perform different tasks. They create the soil every gardener dreams of: easy to work with, dark in color, teeming with a wide variety of biological life and giving off that wonderful, distinctive earthy smell.
Dr. Earth soils are infused with a proprietary blend of superior microbes and called TruBiotic®. TruBiotic® ensures organic nutrients are thoroughly broken down and then released in the soil for plant roots to absorb them as they are needed, contributing to drought tolerance, enhanced nutrient availability and increased plant performance.
PreBiotic® – Feeding the intelligence
As we’ve learned, Dr. Earth soil is infused with TruBiotic®, but what provides food for the living microbes, or probiotics? The answer is found in yet another patent pending technology called PreBiotic®. Prebiotics are full-spectrum green super foods for probiotics, kicking them into high gear for better performance & maximum results immediately. They feed the microbes to help keep them alive in the soil.
Sustainably Made in the USA – Yesterdays’ Crops become todays’ SOIL
As earth’s population continues to grow at a rapid pace, managing our food waste becomes vital to sustainability. The best soils are made from organic food and tons of food grown for sale at your local supermarket never makes it to the shelf. Food, such as oranges and tomatoes, that doesn’t make the cut for consumer use gets buried in landfills. Rather than burying this nutrient rich resource, we give it a renewed purpose by using it to make the soil that will grow tomorrow’s food. Dr. Earth converts over 380,000 tons of green materials into compost, mulch and other premium soil products each year. We are the pioneers of sustainable management of biodegradable resources. The result from this process contributes to water purity, reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a source of the best ingredients on earth.
Premium Organic Purity
Dr. Earth soils may not be the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. Our soil meets the highest standards and are 100% organic and natural. We don’t cut corners with cheap fillers, synthetic ingredients or GMO infested chicken manure.
Manure & odor free.
