Why We Changed Our Name

Our story began in 2005 when we took ownership of Hohstadts Garden Center. Hohstadts was located in the heart of the Emerald Triangle in Southern Humboldt county and was the first business to offer bulk soil to farmers and rural land owners in Humboldt County. As the industry grew and we saw a demand for our products reach down to Mendocino and Sonoma counties it became obvious we needed to find a way to serve a much larger customer base.

In 2019 Sequoia Soil was founded as a solution to this. In the beginning we were a wholesale company that sold the products to other retail stores. This all changed when we opened our own retail location in Ukiah, California. As we grew into our new spot we realized there was another business within 100 miles of us with a similar name. It became apparent that we needed to start fresh and differentiate our name as we have done with our products and services. Rest assured we are the same crew making our soils and products with the same dedication to quality and service.

We are so excited to launch into this next chapter as Pure Plant Soil!
