My name is Kurt Mikell, owner of American Soil Amendment Products and Nursery in Simi Valley. My passion for soil began in 1975 while taking a horticulture class at Agoura High School. Afterwards, I earned my college degrees and pursued landscaping as a C-27 California State Licensed Landscape Contractor. It was then I became aware of the importance of using organic products in landscape projects, especially around homes. Looking back over the years, it was apparent to me that “we've been organic before organic was popular." I found using products that were organic not only helped plants thrive, it was also good for our environment. 

American Soil began with one basic idea; produce and deliver high quality soil products throughout Ventura, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara counties. Since that time, we have become an essential part of thousands of backyards, organic vegetable gardens, award-winning commercial projects, community gardens, municipal projects, school projects and roof-top gardens.


We begin our composting process with pure virgin wood shavings and sawdust and we adhere to stringent United States Composting Council government approved, Seal of Testing Assurance Standards (USCC-STA Program) for macro and micro nutrient stability. Our organic compost, topsoil mixes, and mulches save water by allowing your soil to retain more water, increase vigorous plant growth, and aerates your soil to facilitate deeper root development and better air/water porosity and percolation. 


We are a locally owned and operated business, and we invest in our community. If you are a non-profit organization, contact me about how I can help your project. With over 35 years of experience, American Soil is the longest established and most experienced, family owned and operated bulk soil provider in Ventura County.


Service and attention to detail is the trademark of our well-trained team. If you are not satisfied for any reason, please come talk to me. We take pride in our work and your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us. So when you need a soil product that has been relied upon for effectiveness and consistency, Call Us for Delivery or come by and Pick-It-Up yourself.  We'll do the loading for you, one yard at a time.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and giving me a chance to tell you more about American Soil’s history and our commitment to quality, service, and community.
