Compost Application Guide

New Lawns
Incorporate 2 to 4 inches of our compost evenly into the top 6 inches of soil. Sow the seeds of your choice.

Established Lawns
Evenly spread 1/4 to 1/2 inch of our compost across the top of the lawn and work in with the back of a yard rake. Water immediately.

Roses and Shrubs
Dig hole 2 to 3 times bigger than the root ball of the trees and mix our compost with this soil 50/50. Work some of this mixture into the bottom of the hole and backfill around the roots with the rest. Tap lightly without compacting before soaking with water.

Trees
Dig a hole 3 to 4 times bigger than the root ball of the trees and mix our compost with this soil 50/50. Work some of this mixture into the bottom of the hole and backfill around the roots with the rest. Tap lightly without compacting before soaking with water.

Potting and Window Boxes
Thoroughly mix compost, sand and neutralized peat equally to form the basic mixture to fill boxes or pots.

Flowers and Vegetable Gardens
Incorporate 2 to 3 inches of our compost evenly into the top 6 inches of soil. Plant either seeds or container plants into the amended layer. Our compost can be used as mulch on top of existing pots or window boxes.

Backyard Compost Starter
Mix 2 to 4 cups of our compost into composting bin on a regular basis. The compost will inoculate the waste with a rich helping of the microorganisms that degrade organic materials.

New Fruit Trees, Wineries, Roses and Shrubs
Dig a hole 2 to 3 times bigger than the root ball of the trees and mix compost up to 50% with soil. Work some of this mixture into the bottom of the hole and fill the hole half full of water. Then put root ball into it and backfill around the roots. Tap lightly without compacting before soaking with more water.
