Black Tea Compost should be mixed at the rate of 1 part compost to 2 parts native soil. You can spread it out two inches deep and then till it in to a depth of six inches. One scoop will cover 80 sq. ft. of area.
Planter's Mix is used to fill large & deep outdoor planter beds or for low areas in a prepared garden.
Red Cedar Mulch is spread around your plants to give them a finished look. This will keep weeds down, conserve moisture, and over time contribute organic material back to the ground below.
Expanded Shale is a long-lasting soil amendment that loosens and aerates clay soils. It provides aeration from within the shale particles. Spread it 1 inch deep and till it into the top 4 inches of soil. Use in combination with compost for the best results. 1 of our scoops will cover 160 sq. ft. of area.
