HOW TO USE

Mulching (Planted Trees, Shrubs, and Perennials)

Apply a 3-4” layer of Soil Amender over your existing garden bed.  It is important that you keep the mulch approximately 6” away from trunks and stems of trees and shrubs.  Also, do not cover the crowns of perennials if applying Soil Amender in the spring before perennials begin to grow.  Irrigate generously.

Soil Amendment (New Trees, Shrubs, and Perennials)

Dig a hole 2 to 3 times wider than diameter of the root ball of the plant and the same depth as the root ball.  Blend one part Soil Amender and two parts of the original soil from the planting hole.  Place the plant in the hole.  The top of the plants root ball should sit 1” to 2” higher than the existing soil grade.  Cut and remove any wire/string and synthetic packing material.  If plants are wrapped in natural burlap, it can be rolled down and buried with the soil/Soil Amender mix.  Backfill the plant with the remaining soil, packing it firmly in rises to prevent settling, then irrigate generously. 

Soil Amendment (Vegetable Beds)

Remove any weeds and other debris from vegetable bed.  Spread a 3”-6” layer of Soil Amender evenly over the bed.  Incorporate the Soil Amender into the top 8”-12” of the existing soil using a rotor-tiller or a shovel.  Once blending is complete, rake to achieve proper grade.  Plant seeds or starter plants and irrigate generously.  Repeat annually.

Lawn Topdressing (Established Lawns)

Core-aerate the lawn to relieve soil compaction.  Cores can be cleaned up, or left to break down naturally.  Spread a ½” layer of Soil Amender over the lawn (¼” if not core-aerating).  It is okay if holes are filled in, especially if you have poor soil.  Gently work the material into the lawn using the backside of a rake.  Irrigate generously for several days.  If you are overseeding, this should be done after you have spread the top dressing.  Apply a phosphorous rich turf starter fertilizer such as 15-30-10 to promote healthy root development.  Also, remember to keep the soil moist (not saturated) until the grass seed has germinated.  Topdressing with Soil Amender on an annual basis will help maintain a healthy lawn.
