We source the sandy loam from a single source to ensure consistency because we also test it for heavy metals and herbicides.  

A sandy loam helps the soil drain and resist compacting.

Leaf Mulch

Protect your plants with natures natural mulch. Leaf mulch is a great alternative to traditional bark/wood mulch. It breaks down quicker, turning into a leaf humus that will nourish the soil below.

Bark and wood mulch suppresses weeds by depleting the soil.  This is useful in commercial landscaping applications where you don't want plants to grow.  

Leaf Mulch will nourish the soil as it breaks down. However it needs to be put on thicker in order to suppress weeds. It is excellent for vegetable gardens, perennial gardens and deciduous trees.

Appearance: Brown, Uniform, Tasteful

Apply 3 inches thick. Easy to spread. 

Available in 10+ 1.5 cubic foot bags or by the yard. 4 yard minimum. $71 to $65 per yard

  • Top dress your vegetables (even if there is compost in your soil already).
  • Less watering needed
  • Drawdown carbon from the atmosphere.
  • Improve property value with more green growth and more blooms.

This compost is finely screened to 1/2 inch so that it's easy to spread across your lawn, trees, or garden beds. Comes with instructions for you or your landscaper.
