Soil Building Systems began in 1972, with its headquarters in Dallas. Rather than rushing to market to sell products, SBS spent considerable time and resources on R&D. After consistent and desirable results were obtained, SBS was open for business.
Many of the lessons learned during this initial research period were in fact contrary to the common wisdom of the day. Interestingly, as the years passed, many of the early concepts conveyed by SBS were eventually adopted within the compost industry.
Over the years, SBS witnessed countless composting companies come and go. SBS weathered the storms by staying true to its original objective - producing only quality products. This guiding principal allowed SBS to endure the test of time. Likewise, conscientious landscapers came to realize that the performance of the installed plants was totally dependent upon the quality of the surrounding soil. Furthermore, the success and survival of the landscapers' business would eventually hinge on this same realization.
As the years went on, SBS had many satellite locations around North Texas, including composting yards in Boyce, Talty, Howard, Roundrock, Five Points, Grifith Switch, and Hillsboro.
In 1993 SBS opened its current and main processing center in Dallas. This location allowed SBS to better serve the landscaping community in and around the Metroplex. Since that time, additional landscape architects and quality conscious landscapers have found SBS through word of mouth. As a result, SBS has steadily grown and expanded. SBS's reputation for delivering quality and results has continued to gain momentum over the years. As such, SBS has supplied the materials for such notable projects as the Klyde Warren Park (Dallas), George W. Bush Presidential Library (Dallas), AT&T Stadium (Arlington), Perot Museum of Natural and Science (Dallas), and thousands upon thousands more, of all sizes and price sensitivity.
For years SBS had been the best-kept secret in the landscaping industry, but no more. SBS now ships across Texas and into neighboring states. Whether you are in need of bulk or bagged materials, for residential jobs or the largest of the large commercial or municipal endeavors, SBS remains the trusted leader for providing consistently top-notch and value-focused materials. If your job requires STA Certified materials, or a Woman Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) supplier status, or you are simply in need of reliable products so that you can grow your business through customer referrals, SBS is your answer.
