We know how time sensitive stabilization can be when approaching the end of a project. It is critically important to get your seed down and achieve germination before the November cut off. Once a site is stabilized, converting the silt catch basins into functioning bioretention basins is the last key deliverable for dedication.
Having an experienced soil partner that understands the needs of your project is the key to achieving fast and successful slope stabilization and basin conversions. Laurel Valley is a unique soil producer, as not only do we have a state of the art manufacturing facility, we have an experienced team who understands the chemistry and science of soils so we can make the quality compost and engineered soils that your projects require.
We have been in business since long before “bioretention Soil” was even a product; making compost for more than forty years and blending soil products for nearly twenty. Specializing in PennDOT, Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and Philadelphia Water Department specifications is just some of what we do.
We take the science of soil seriously and we work closely with landscape architects, soil engineers, universities and soil testing laboratories. Soil specifications and the soil submittal process have become very complicated. Our in-depth understanding of soil blending and soil specifications allow us to provide accurate and competitive pricing up front. Don’t allow yourself to get to the end of the project only to find out that you have budgeted for the wrong soil blend or have your soil submittal rejected.
You can have confidence in knowing that we provide the whole package from inventorying the highest quality ingredients with large volume production capacity to providing guidance through the bid process and delivering testing and submittals. Consider Laurel Valley not only your go to manufacture but your trusted advisor. Your success is our success.
