Our Dredging Process
Organic soil is dredged from a Kettle Lake.
Kettle lakes, caused by receding glaciers are thousands of years old. Left untouched, they can fill in. Dredging enables the lake to flourish for years to come.
Soil is placed on barge for transportation.
Once the organic topsoil is placed on the barge, it is ready to be transported to our screening area.
The topsoil is then allowed to dry and then put through a screener to remove any rocks or debris for a suitable texture. The result is organic, nutrient-rich topsoil that is ready to be placed in your garden.

Last year I used reclaimed Kettle Lake Soil for the foundation of my new lawn just above the garden here. I’m already cutting that grass, well ahead of other grass on my property, without any fertilizer added. Now I’m building this large garden and the boxes are filled with lake soil raring to go!

Do you know how I can arrange delivery? Last year we picked up, but I’d like a bigger load this year… thanks for your help!
Will you be having a Kettle Lake Soil sale this year?
I love it!

I planted a vegetable garden in pure Kettle Lake Soil to prove that it was capable of growing vegetation. The seeds that I planted were corn, beets, zucchini, radishes, string beans (yellow and green) and carrots. I have pictures of the harvest beside a measuring ruler to show the size. The carrots, beets and radishes were easy to harvest as they pulled out and shook off, no shovel required.
It was spread on my hay fields with a hydra-push manure spreader and another hay field was planted in the previous dewatering sediment site. The hay grows quickly and lushly.
We used Kettle Lake Soil and were amazed at how tall and lushes the hay turned out. With our field, we were able to get an extra harvest because of how fertile the lake sediment is!

We’ve been using Kettle Lake in all sorts of applications, especially with new plantings and new seed/sod. It is so easy to work with and we have had great results!
