About Us

Landscapers have been using Amazon’s high quality soils, mulches and compost for over 20 years.

Amazon products are made from quality renewable natural resources and all ingredients are carefully chosen to ensure optimum product performance. The use of rich organic waste materials provides a great benefit to the environment and the community by preventing these materials from going to landfills.

Although many of our products have the premium Australian Standards certification, all our products follow the same strict quality control procedures to ensure the quality and consistency of our entire range.

Amazon supplies landscapers, local government, land developers and soil yards with consistent high quality products.

We have products to suit any requirements and can custom make mixes to suit any type of landscapes – you think of it and our products will create it!

Amazon Company History

Amazon began as a Kwinana based cartage contractor back in the late 70’s. This led to the foundation of a landscaping supplies’ business named “Landscaping Supplies – Gwelup”. In the early eighties the business was further developed into a fully commercial landscape supplies yard selling small batches of soil mixes and mulches to landscaping contractors and garden centres.

In the very late eighties the business was renamed “Amazon Soils & Landscaping Supplies” and by November 1990, the company outgrew the block of land at Gwelup and moved soil blending to Lansdale and kept the retail yard at Gwelup. In 1992, the company restructured with the retail division separating from the company. The wholesale division was brought to new levels with the additions of four new working partners with high levels of skills in road transport, machinery / equipment development, finance, sales and marketing.

When added to Amazon’s existing experience in the blending of soils and mulches, this created a very successful formula.

The Amazon business continued to enjoy steady growth and on the 1st September 2004, Australian owned, A.Richards Pty Ltd, better known as garden market leader Richgro Garden Products acquired the Amazon business to bring it under their successful stable of companies that manufacture quality organic materials for the commercial, landscape and home garden markets. This move gave an additional edge to Amazon with even higher levels of technology, expertise and quality control integrated in the business.

“The Amazon brand is harmonious with A. Richards’s business philosophy and is committed to providing higher quality products and services than those enjoyed in the market today.” Geoff Richards, Managing Director, A.Richards Co Lt
