Our Soil Characteristics:
Kettle Lake topsoil is just as the name suggests: It’s a topsoil that has been dredged from a glacier-made Kettle Lake. Nothing added, nothing blended. It is a nutrient-rich earth, allowing you to grow an amazingly healthy garden!
It is not black, because we don’t add dyes like other brands. Kettle Lake topsoil exhibits a natural grey-brown texture. It easily maintains a loose, almost spongy feel.
Use for flower, vegetable and shrub gardens, lawns, crops, pots and greenhouses. Kettle Lake topsoil is light and fluffy, making it easy to plant and maintain a healthy garden. Organic farmers and those who support a healthy lifestyle love it. You can’t get any more down-to-earth than this!
In very dry conditions you may notice that the surface may crack. This is just normal shrinking. Simply rake it out, or cover with mulch.
Want to know the best part about our soil?
You do not need to add fertilizer! Because it is naturally rich in nutrients, chemical additives are not needed. It provides all the nutrients required for successful plant growth.
Once you try it, you’ll never buy from big box stores again. Just as our tagline suggests, it really is Natures Organic Blend.
Wait! Don’t just take our word for it. Read what this customer had to say:
Last year I used reclaimed 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 more raring to go! Lorne C.

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!
