The easiest way to get an overstuffed cubic yard (3’x3’x3’) of rich, loamy Black Garden Soil delivered in a bulk bag to your home. We deliver within 30 miles of Saratoga Sod, including areas like Saratoga Springs, Clifton Park, Glens Falls, Albany, and Troy.
Black Garden Soil is good for:
- Vegetable Gardens
- Flower Beds
- Topdressing or Overseeding Lawns
Black Garden Soil works best when it is incorporated into the top few inches of your existing soil to enrich and improve it. A blend of black loam, peat loam and composted manure, these ingredients encourage microbial activity for plant growth. Helps lawns too—raking in Black Garden Soil helps break down thatch, and encourages deeper, healthier roots.
Get ready for spring this fall, by mulching and/or incorporating garden soil:
- Plant bulbs in the fall and watch them pop!
- Divide overcrowded perennials
- Incorporate nutrient-rich Black Garden Soil into vegetable and flower gardens in preparation for spring planting
- Mulch flower and perennial beds to retain moisture and protect the roots for winter

Soil Depth Chart
To use the chart, determine the square footage of your area and look for that number to the left side of the chart. Then determine the depth of the soil you feel is needed and find that number along the top of the chart. Where the two boxes intersect will be the approximate cubic yards of soil needed. Remember, when using the chart for soil calculations, add 20% to the yardage recommended to account for compaction.
