Soil Amendments

We use a variety of composted products to amend the topsoil in your landscape gardens and beds. You may want to consider using pelletized compost which is the same product we use in our own gardens.

Compost adds organic matter to the soil. It also has an active biology which means it continues to benefit the soil long after it has been introduced. And finally, it is considered to have a macro-porous element. This means it helps the soil to breathe.

When we meet someone to discuss lawn care, we continually stress the benefits of aeration. It helps compacted soil by breaking up the hard clay. This allows nutrients and water to get to the root zone of the plants.

Additionally, to further assist in keeping soil aerated, we can now add macro-porous compost to the soil. After our manual aeration is complete, the addition of macro-porous compost further extends the benefits of aeration.

Elaine Ingham of the Soil Food Laboratory cites this compost as the "...best humic acid product available." Recently, she isolated a very unique strain of Baccillus Thuringensis that is naturally occurring in the site where this compost was created. The material contains at least ten strains of Nitro Baccillus which are responsible for fixing atmospheric and terrestrial nitrogen to plant available forms.

To summarize, the compost contains stable organic material that is biologically active and contains a complete micronutrient, trace material and trace element package.

Our compost is pelletized, so it can be worked into the soil quickly and efficiently. While this pelletized compost has a faint odor, it does not smell like the more traditional forms of compost. It has a pleasant earthy smell that isn't offensive to us…and your soil will love it.
