Recology Premium Compost

RecologyPremiumCompostA dark, nutrient-rich mulch containing millions of beneficial microbes that promote healthy plant life. Yard debris and food scrap feedstock are transformed into compost, then screened to sizes less than 5/8 of an inch and cured to ensure a mature finished product that will be most beneficial for all kinds of soils.

: Best used as a soil amendment or ground cover. When used as a soil amendment and applied properly, it puts life back in your soil. We recommend thoroughly working the compost in with your existing soil at a ratio of approximately 2″ of compost with the top 8″-12″ of your soil. When used as a ground cover, it is an attractive alternative to barkdust that, unlike barkdust, feeds plants and soil while tending to maintain its color. Other benefits of the compost may include: moisture retention, erosion control, less soil compaction, better drainage and disease suppression.
