"We certainly believe that Soil Building Systems’ products are special. They are a key component to the success of our planting. Soil Building Systems is our specified provider for soil. In the past, if we have a problem with planting, or plants appearing chlorotic, we could trace the issue back to an unspecified soil mix. Such a mix would not contain properly decomposed compost, which caused plants to be burned by 'too hot' of a soil. With Soil Building Systems we have never had this problem."

-- Coy Talley, ASLA Principal

"We have utilized the soil amendment products developed by Soil Building Systems for bed preparation on our projects for approximately 15 years. We have found that the organic products developed by SBS provide the best complement to the North Texas soils that we deal with on a daily basis. The consistency of the compost and azalea mixes allow for uniformity from project to project. We have also found SBS to be very flexible about mixing specific blends of amendments for unique requirements on projects, such as topdressings for lawns or fine tuning soils where drainage percolation is a problem. We recommend Soil Building Systems for all of your soil amendment product needs."

“First and foremost I am impressed with SBS' excellent customer service. SBS is always pleasant to work with and they work hard to please. They are willing to explain things in detail and are happy to give expert advice when requested. Their pH Balanced bedding soil is excellent, and their Top Soil has a tremendous porosity level, balanced with the appropriate level of compost for nutrition. Their hardwood mulch has never had large chunks or trash in it, which is normal with some other companies. We depend on these fine products to achieve outstanding results in our color beds, container plantings, landscape bed preparations, and lawn installations, and we can rely on these exclusive soils to help Lawns of Dallas surpass the high expectations of even the most demanding of customers.”
