Pumice in Bulk?

gargaileDecember 31, 2013

Hello folks! Anyone know a place in LA area to buy pumice in bulk?

I know OSH sells in small packs but like commercially?

Thank you. Gary

Here's a couple to start with. There is one more that I'm trying to remember and will post when I think of it.

O.F. Wolfinbarger in Ontario off the 60 freeway.
Long Beach Shavings And Top Soil.

Not in LA exactly........ but if you're ever near Anaheim stadium, check out Orange County Farm Supply. I think a 50lb bag is still less than $10.00.

Icadena - "Long Beach Shavings And Top Soil" - Is this a pumice source in Long Beach?

Growforit, I think so. I asked my brother who is a landscape contractor and he thinks it is. Could be wrong, but a phone call ahead of time might be wise.

Are you near the southbay? LA is a big place haha

I go to Lomita Feed which is a Feed store and buy a 40 lb bag for $14-18. Lomita

You could try feed stores in your area

That's where I get mine. OC Farm Supply. Seems more like 30 pounds, they bag it themselves. Either way, a good deal. They do run out so be sure to call first before you go.

Agromin, off Hueneme road in Oxnard/Port Hueneme, sells pumice for app. $35 a yard (fills the bed of a pickup). It's less than an hour north of LA. They also do custom soil mixes for far less than garden supply stores if you're willing to buy by the yard. RTH Zone 10a

Gary,

You might also see if you have a Hanson Aggregate in your area - many a bag of pumice was harvested in their San Diego location, but they might be in SouCal, too.

Thanks guys for tips. I bought some bags at the location in OC.

I was wondering if anyone knows where to get Decomposed Granite in bulk or pebbles or pumic in bulk. Like where u can get them to dump a couple truck loads in your yard, not just bags?

I'm going to be doing some big landscaping about 1500 square feet of lawn changed into a succulent garden.

Any other tips helpful

Thanks Reggieee I'll check them out. I also got recommended a place called Thompsons Landscaping supplies, but their reviews on yelp aren't the greatest. Anyone have experience with them?
