Who we are
Founder and President
“The Organic Mechanic”
At Organic Mechanics, we’re passionate about all natural, sustainable gardening that provides superior results. That’s why our soils are 100% peat-free, made with locally sourced ingredients, and used by professional gardeners at public gardens like Longwood Gardens, New England Botanical Garden at Tower Hill, the US Botanical Garden, and more.
Being kind to the planet is a core belief of our company. Its why we choose to use Rice Hulls in place of perlite in most of our blends. Our delivery trucks and manufacturing equipment use bio-diesel, we use recycled pallets for shipping, and we reuse and recycle packaging back from our local customers. Try our soil today and you’ll see the difference. Improve the quality, yield and appearance of your plants this season with Organic Mechanics® potting soils and soil amendments. Your plants will love you for it!.
Founded in 2006, The Organic Mechanics Soil Company, LLC is a manufacturer and distributor of premier organic potting soils and soil amendments for the professional and consumer gardening communities.
Our products can be found in independent garden centers, natural food stores, farmers markets, and botanical gardens across the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and Midwest regions of the United States.
The inaugural product launch in 2007 introduced our Premium Blend, a 100% organic, premium quality potting soil. In 2008 we expanded the line to include our all-purpose Container Blend potting soil, as well as our nutrient-rich Worm Castings. 2010 brought the introduction of our compost-based soil amendment called Planting Mix.
In 2011, we were proud to introduce our Seed Starting Blend, the perfect soil mix to sow all of your seeds. In the years since, new product innovations have filled the needs of our customers and complement the core product line of Organic Mechanics potting soils.

At Organic Mechanics, “We Work On Your Soil!” ®
Here’s what Sarah Sterling, the Shipley School’s Associate Director of College Counseling had to say about the Organic Mechanics products used in their horticulture education:
“The Shipley School’s horticulture program provides all members of the community with opportunities to learn together, grow as individuals, and cultivate well-being through horticultural initiatives. As an educational institution, sustainability and hands-on learning are integrated into our program.”
“Using Organic Mechanics products means that our students can plant flowers and grow food, without the concern of coming into contact with harmful chemical fertilizers. Additionally, since our horticultural activities range from seed-starting to designing and planting exhibits for the Philadelphia Flower Show, Organic Mechanics always has the right soil for the job.”
It’s such a blessing to know our creations have such an impact.
