Diversification is the keyword to enhancing services for customers and keeping up with ever-changing needs. With the creation of the computerized Accublender™ in 1995, customer’s requests for quality, consistent engineered soils were answered. The addition of Rain Garden drainage filtration soils, Rooftop Garden Mixes, CU-Structural Soil, and Minnesota DOT soil mixes have further defined Plaisted’s reputation as the leading soil blender run the region.

Masons in the area seeking professional-grade tools and hot mason sand found their requests answered by the opening of the Plaisted Landscape Supply retail store in 1999. The store also became a distributor for Keystone® retaining wall and Borgert® pavers. To help you create the perfect outdoor ambiance, we’ve expanded our landscape supply line to include beautiful outdoor fireplaces and firepits. Quality brands, built to last.

  2. Responsiveness:  On-time deliveries with our own fleet of trucks.
  3. Expertise/Creative Solutions:  Professional staff that collaborates with customers for best solutions.
