About Pure Living Soils

Pure Living Soil is a Tasmanian owned and operated company run in a joint venture between Pure Foods & Barwicks Landscape Supplies. We provide sustainable inputs for both the agricultural and home gardening industries. We also provide sustainable waste management solutions for companies throughout Tasmania, by taking their problem wastes and turning them into a valuable product. Foundation Aerobic Compost is not only good for your soil it’s good for the environment.

Formally known as Soil First, Pure Living Soil have been manufacturing Foundation Aerobic Compost since 2003 and have refined the product to a very high standard. We currently produce over 10,000 tonnes of compost per annum.

Our composting site is located 8km out of Oatlands on Interlaken Road, once the compost has been produced the product is delivered across Tasmania. It is used widely throughout many agricultural industries, and is trucked as far as Circular Head and to the Huon Valley.

More recently we have branched into the home garden and landscaping sector, with our compost now available through nurseries & landscape suppliers. Foundation Aerobic Compost is bagged by Waratah Launceston Pty Ltd and is marketed as ‘Gardeners Friend Organic Compost’. It is available throughout their network in 25 lt bags.

The aerobic windrow composting process uses large amounts of green waste. Pure Living Soil have invested in a large amount of heavy machinery, which enable us to provide a mulch and remove green waste service. This machinery is capable of processing 80 cubic metres of mulched green waste per hour and generates a product which is perfect for composting. The Mulch and removal service, as well as a mulch only service, is available to councils and businesses throughout Tasmania.

On this website you will find some basic information on our products and our process. For personal advice on your soils conditioning and nutrient needs please call Andrew on 0438 359 981 or send us an email from our contact page.
