Free Product Giveaway Saturday!

Second Saturday of the Month

Don’t miss out…it only happens once a month!

San Pasqual Valley Soils loves to donate back to our community. Each month, only on the second Saturday of the month, we will offer a single product of our choosing for free to the public. We invite you to come and load up whatever amount you need for your own benefit. Free if self-loaded into your vehicle using your own containers and tools. Product must be tarped in trucks or contained.

We will load any standard pick-up truck or small trailer (approx. 1-2 cubic yards) for a fee of $10/load (cash only during event). Guests that would like larger quantities must self-load it manually or purchase the material at our standard wholesale price which includes loading at no additional cost. Delivery of purchased material is available for a fee throughout San Diego county by San Pasqual Valley Soils trucks.

Event may be canceled due to rain or low product inventory. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Google Business to see the latest event notifications. All guests must comply with our SPVS Public Event Safety Guidelines.


Enter yard, stay in your car and drive up to an attendant to check in and get directions on where to go to pick up your compost (no need to call in advance). San Diego County is no longer mandating masks, but you are welcome to wear them at our facility. Thank you!

Thank you for the wonderful response to our Free Product Giveaways!

Featured Product for June

Nature's Fines - June's Featured Product | SPV Soils

Nature’s Fines

June’s Featured Product is Nature’s Fines! It is the latest addition to our mulch products and is our equivalent to Forest Fines which is widely used throughout San Diego County. This unique ground cover does double-duty providing the longer-lasting benefits of a courser mulch while also providing the soil enrichment benefits of a finer mulch. The finer particles meld together to provide good weed and soil temperature control while also retaining valuable moisture for plants. Nature’s Fines has not been composted, but it is double-ground from clean landscape greens. It will beautify your landscape while it provides awesome benefits to San Diego area plants during drier months.

For best results, apply 2” to 3” thick for pathways, established flower beds and shrubs, and 3” to 4” thick around trees.

For information about using mulch, check out Dr. K’s Compost and Mulch Tips, CalRecycle’s Compost and Mulch Use Toolbox, or SPV Soils Resources. Feel free to contact Dr. K with any questions.
