Soil and Turf Specialists
SBE Certified

Dirt is dirt.  Right?  Not exactly…Starting in 1955, Alvis has worked towards becoming the go-to for special types of soils.  Bioswales, biosoils, rain gardens, ball diamonds, horse arenas, garden blends, golf course blends.  All soils need to be rather specific in what they need to do.  Soils with high or low pH grow certain types of plants.  Biorentention blends and rain gardens really need a material that will perc (drain) very quickly but still provide nutrients for the plants.  Ball diamonds need a sandier soil to allow water to drain as fast as possible with as few rain outs as possible.  Horse arenas have several types of materials that can be used all based on personal preference and what the horses are going to be doing.  Garden soils need to have a lot of nutrients and need to be able to hold moisture to keep plants healthy and happy.  Golf courses are a whole entire system all on their own!  Believe it or not, most golf courses are built with and maintained mainly with sand.
