Good Time for Compost

Compost application on the lawn will help provide nutrients for your yard. Some experts believe it is a great way to conserve water and it may reduce some disease problems in St Augustine grass. It clearly does help make for a healthy turfgrass. The key is to use a well composted product from a supplier like Fertile Garden Supply. We spread it with shovels and wheel barrows and then use the back side of a steel soil rake to work it into the grass. If you have shallow soil it is a good idea to use a mixture of compost and soil instead of straight compost. Companies like Fertile Garden can help you chose a product that provides soil and compost. The Fertile Garden "light garden mix" is one example of a soil and compost product that would be good to build up the depth of your soil by repeated applications over several years.
