About Read Custom Soils

We learned the soil blending business by meeting the exacting specifications of golf course superintendents. Today we service over 400 golf courses throughout New England.

Starting at “the top”, Read Custom Soils is New England’s leading provider of lightweight planting soil for green roof installations. We are the regional licensed blender of rooflite® Certified Green Roof Media.

At the ground level, we are the exclusive New England supplier of stabilized stonedust; the pervious surface of choice for nature paths and pedestrian walkways. We offer Stabilizer® (from Stabilizer Solutions) or the new Organic-Lock™ binder from Envirobond.

Adding our FiberSoils™ turfgrids to sand-based soil makes it possible to drive and park on grass by dramatically boosting the shear strength and load bearing capacity of the soil.

Read is the licensed supplier of Cornell University Structural Soil (“CU Soil”); a proprietary blend for successfully planting trees in challenging urban environments.

Our bioretention / rain garden soils are specifically designed and blended to meet project specifications and to provide a balance of pollutant sequestration and water infiltration, while supporting plant growth.

Read is New England’s most experienced precision soil blender. We operate from a state-of-the-art blending facility in Carver, MA, along with a New Hampshire quarry and a blending facility in Westford, MA.

Read Custom Soils is a division of the A.D. Makepeace Company of Wareham, Massachusetts.
