Quality topsoil is the basis for quality landscapes. The growth rate, health and visual appearance of landscape plants are directly related to soil quality.The old cliche’ “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” applies to acquiring quality topsoil. Make a concerted effort to acquire high quality soil, even if it costs more initially. It will be less expensive in the long term than treating recurring problems and having to replace landscape plants that fail due to poor soil conditions. Our Flower Bed Mix contain Humus, Mushroom Compost, and Mortar Sand. This is a looser mix for roses and other flowers. Our Garden Mix contains 2 parts top soil and 1 part of the following humus, sand, mushroom compost. This is a heavier, thicker mix geared towards trees, shrubs and vegetables. Adding the extra topsoil and sand allowed us to raise the center of the lawn to ensure excellent drainage. Mushroom Compost is a naturally rich organic soil fertilizer for use in all outdoor gardens and flower beds, or as a topdress humus for moisture retention. Mushroom Compost is a blend of chicken manure, hay, cotton seed, gypsum, and urea. Mushroom Compost should be applied and worked into existing soil in late fall or early spring prior to planting, but may be used as a topdress mulch between garden rows for better moisture retention and plant nutrition during the growing season.
