Where can I buy soil and compost for raised beds?
Soil mixes can be bought in bags at most garden centers and nurseries. Bagged soil is usually more expensive, however, than buying soil in bulk. Bulk soil is sold by the cubic yard and available at some nurseries, farms and specialty shops selling landscape materials. It can usually be delivered to your home for a fee. Bulk soil is cheaper at higher volumes, so plan ahead and purchase all the soil you will need, along with any other materials, such as gravel for drainage, wood chips for pathways, and straw for mulch.
