BuildASoil Light Recipe is our All-Purpose Mix. It was designed based on Logan Labs soil testing and saturated paste testing. We wanted to design a premium plant and mineral based potting soil. Along with that it had to be a compost based soil without any of the low quality ingredients normally in “organic” potting soils. Besides being clean, the goal was that it would test High in available calcium and low in available sodium. After dozens of lab tests and real world tests, this potting soil mix became a  clear cut favorite or BuildASoil customers. It was designed to work with all plants by keeping excess to a minimum and balance as the all goal. Because the recipe is so balanced it has the ability to be run as a No-Till Soil with added topdressing or to be run as a highly steerable recipe for organic feeding. Compared to our other recipes this is our most popular all around potting mix. Excellent for starting seeds or full term growth

Best pre-made soil!

I have this soil in my 25g no till pots. They are on their 5th cycle and crushing it!!! Only being given organicsalive and rootwisesoildynamics. Just a couple weeks ago, I had 2 bags of this show up at my house out of nowhere... I didnt order them. I messaged build a soil about it, but never got a response... my lucky day 🤷🏼‍♂️

Great for germination / seedlings!

I use a small amount of this on the top layer of my pots for the germinated seed to grow in to, then will fill the rest of my pot with the V3.0 mix-

Great for seedlings!!

First time buyer

Trialing in my raised beds vs two other local products. It’s early, so jury’s out. But in the bed, it looks and feels fantastic. My horticultural son is impressed, too. Very pleased, shipping and communication were excellent in these covid days, as well.
