Soil3 from Super Sod has become the most important gardening tool I use. The quality of this “black cake mix” compost is unmatched and the convenience of the water proof, 1 cubic yard bag that gets delivered to my house has made my life as a gardener so much easier! I only wish I knew about this product when I started my garden in 2011.

It was arranged that all the profits from the 2017 Fuquay Garden Tour be donated to the Herbert Akins Elementary School Garden project.
