Perfect for most applications where compost is needed as a soil amendment. Best used as an initial amendment that is worked into the soil or as a topdressing.

BR-1MG “Market Garden Compost” NEW! This 100% compost blend is specially designed for those setting up their garden or farm for serious success. Having worked with local farmers on this blend, we feel it is the perfect compost to plant directly into for those that would like to prepare their beds with an initial thick layer of compost (around 5”). These are often called “market gardens”, and can be built and planted right away.
This topdressing was created for soil leveling to eliminate uneven cuts and create a more enjoyable mowing experience. It has the added benefits of compost which bring nutrients, beneficial biology, moisture holding capacity, and organic matter to create a healthy lawn. This blend utilizes fine-screened compost and golf course sand.
What's the number one rule of soil building? Keep it covered! Double shredded hardwood mulch makes the perfect mulch cover over BR-4 for your landscape beds or it can pack down and be used to create pathways in the garden. When creating pathways, it is best to lay down a layer of cardboard first and especially if you are covering up an area that was lawn. Pair this with our BR-1MG when creating a market-style garden and you will love your new weather-proof garden! When dry, this natural mulch is a neutral light brown.
