To many, soil is just dirt. At O'Toole's, we understand that soil is the elixir of life! By definition, soil is the mixture of minerals, organic matter, gases, liquids, and countless organisms that live just under the surface. This mixture provides the necessary natural nutrients to your plants in order to give them a stable foundation on which to grow. We also understand that Colorado has a unique terrain that can require different soil classifications depending on your neighborhood and what sort of planting you are planning on.

Soil is important and that's why O'Toole's carries only the best brands of soils for our customers. See a few of our soil options listed below and visit your local O'Toole's Garden Centers location to get the soil you need today!
