Berm Dirt

More Berm, Less Money

Do not underestimate the value of having a good soil under a berm.  The plantings which we place amid our berms come at a cost, and that cost rises if we must replace any failed plants.  Berm Dirt is blended to provide the benefits of a fertile soil that will help trees and shrubs thrive at half the cost of other soil blends.  This blend is far and away better than the fill dirt or gravel that is often used in forming berms.  Our Berm Dirt is composed of the off fall from Soil Rejuvenation's soil blending processes: clods and balls which are sifted from all of our other soil products.  The resulting dirt is a marbly matrix of compost, clay and mulch particles.  Particle sizes vary between 3" and 1/2".  When bringing this matrix into the context of forming a berm, the nurturing mixture provides a fertile environment for roots to develop and eases the shock of transplant.  Over time berm dirt will settle, but only as the new roots entangle through the pore spaces.

Fertile Soil Makes for Faster Growth

Berm Dirt provides a low cost alternative for constructing contours and doing large grade adjustments in a landscape.  Although low in cost, Berm Dirt provides a great fertile rootzone for trees and shrubs.

Benefits of Berm Dirt

  • High in organic matter
  • High water holding capacity
  • Low cost
  • Few rocks
  • Positive environment for root growth

Recommended Uses

  • Constructing berms
  • Leveling grade
  • Backfilling trees & shurbs

We recommend that Berm Dirt be moved with mobile equipment because of its 1/2" - 3" texture.  Clods and balls are easily smashed with a machine as the final shape of the berm is formed.
