Our History

After 21 years, we have permanently closed.  This decision was not made lightly.  Many factors, some business, personal and medical, attributed to this choice.  We have left the industry in good standing and no other party has assumed all or any part of this business.

Advanced Organic Materials By The Dirt Girl is no more.

We are pursuing an agreement to have our proprietary signature soil recipes available through other sources.  Please be patient and check the website for more details as they occur.


Advanced Organic Materials was established by my father, Charles, in 2001 to provide quality landscaping materials in a fast and friendly manner at competitive prices, specializing in the smaller jobs that get overlooked by the larger landscape suppliers.  Dad is the true mastermind behind our soil mixtures and materials selection.  He has been in the landscaping industry since childhood and holds a wealth of knowledge and experience.

I, Andrea, assumed the business when Charles retired in 2010.  Beginning as a dump truck driver in 2005, I listened to and learned everything from Dad and began managing the company a few years later so that he could enjoy semi-retirement.  While officially he is retired, I still work closely with my father during the peak seasons and enjoy that we can spend time together in the work place.  We relocated to Buda, TX and feel that we have finally found a permanent home!  We have been able to expand (but not too big) while maintaining the small business mentality that our customers have come to know and appreciate.   We are all committed to preserving the reputation established by my father and providing quality service to each and every customer.  We focus on locally source materials to make our specialty soil blends to promote our local economy and keep our price points as low as possible.

My Dad and sister have been enjoy time together researching our family history, they discovered an interesting tidbit.  Through their genealogy searches, we have been able to trace our landscaping heritage back to 1000 AD.  Although not as refined as the current landscaping practices, we can truly say that we have over a 1000 years of landscaping experience!
