Product Details: Compost *certified*

Compost *certified*

A nutritious blend made exclusively from composted yard trimmings and food scraps. Contains ZERO biosolids! This compost is created under strict controls and testing resulting in a fine, very fertile media that can be used for blending in with existing on-site soils to improve organic content, soil structure, water retention, and soil nutrients among many other benefits.

  • Best “turned-in” to existing soil once per year by spade or rototiller at a 3:1 ratio of soil to compost. If you turn the top 6” of soil, then apply 2” of compost before turning in.
  • Dark color provides excellent contrast with plants.
  • Yes, the compost does have some smell when initially placed, and will have some clumps that need to be lightly broken up. Our organic garden soil is also suitable as a soil amender.

An excellent, fertile compost that will greatly improve the soils in any garden!
