TURF ESTABLISHMENT
One of the best uses for compost is amending soils prior to planting a lawn or garden. By amending your soil with Harvest Blend Compost you will add structure and nutrients. Your lawn will grow with a lush green look!
Recommended Application
  1. Prior to applying the compost, prepare the soil by tilling the site. Thoroughly work and loosen soil to be planted 5 to 6 inches deep.
  2. Level the area so your newly planted lawn will drain correctly.
  3. Uniformly apply one and one half (1 1/2”) to two (2”) inches of Harvest Blend Compost (4.70 to 6.20 cubic yards per 1000 sq. ft.) over entire area.
  4. Following application of compost, blend it in with the soil five to six inches deep. Shovel or rotor tiller will work just fine.
  5. Rake surface smooth prior to placing sod or seeding. Soil surface should be firm and free of clods, stones, roots or foreign objects.
  6. Apply your sod or seed per the company’s instructions.
  7. Water thoroughly after placing sod or seeding.
Why use compost for turf establishment?
Agronomic benefits include reducing compaction, increasing drainage, increasing nutrient exchange capacity, increasing moisture retention, reducing erosion potential of soils, and a host of others. Many contractors also claim using compost helps increase speed and total % germination of turf seed plus increased knitting of roots for projects with sod.
