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.
It contains premium dairy/cattle manures, nutrient-rich equine bedding (that contains flailed wood shavings, alfalfa, and straw), along with virgin alpine wood. Everything is mixed, composted and cured.

Planting Mix/Top Soil can be used for filling in low spots in unamended soil or for building a berm.
Mix with a 3.8 cubic foot bale of sphagnum peat moss (or equivalent organic amendments) per cubic yard when
filling large & deep outdoor planter beds or low areas in a prepared garden.

Grower's Supreme Mix contains Nature's Yield compost, Soil Pep bark fines, pumice, and
sphagnum peat moss. We use this mix to grow our roses and tomatoes. It's ready to use in raised beds
and large containers.

Gorilla Hair Cedar Mulch is placed on top of the ground to retain moisture, reduce weeds and provide an attractive appearance. This finely-shredded cedar mulch stays in place in windy areas and on hillsides better than regular cedar mulch.

For shallow raised beds or in the top layer of a deep raised bed, use Echter's Raised Bed Mix available in 60 qt. (2.33 cu. ft.) bags

For outdoor planter boxes, containers, and hanging baskets use Echter's Outdoor Container Mix available in 30 qt. bags and 60 qt. (2.33 cu. ft.) bags.
