Company Overview


Lyngso was founded in the early 1950’s by John and Mary Lyngso. To this day, our company remains a family-run business. Many of our employees have been with us for over 20 years; all are passionate about providing the best possible service.

Our site in San Carlos contains everything from sands, pebbles and boulders to tools and soil mixes. Lyngso has the materials and expertise to satisfy the largest contractor as well as the personal approach to guide the homeowner on his first landscaping project.

We enjoy participating in community projects and have always sought to provide what our community needs, whether that means materials or information. It is our goal to remain a valuable resource to landscapers throughout the Greater Peninsula.



In recent years, Lyngso has evolved its landscaping business to include organic gardening. We can assist you with any project, from retaining walls to helping you improve the biology of your soil.

In fact, we have become renowned for carrying a unique line of organic soil improvements, ranging from locally brewed compost tea to special composts and mulches. Many of our team members have undergone training in the area of soil biology.

Throughout the nearly 60 years of Lyngso’s existence, we have expanded the size and scope of our operation. However one value remains constant: Service. This concept is not just an important part of our business; service is the heart of our business. We pride ourselves in helping customers use our products to make the world a more beautiful place.
