Compost and Soils

Compost ProductsCompost
Description: This dark, nutrient-rich product contains millions of beneficial microbes that promote healthy plant life, and is made from 100% recycled yard debris, municipal green material and food scraps. This compost is screened to sizes less than 5/8" and has the US Composting Council's Seal of Testing Assurance.

Uses: Northwest Greenlands' compost is 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.

50/50 plant mix50/50 Plant Mix
Description: A mixture of 50% fine garden compost and 50% sandy loam.

Uses: This is an extremely popular product used as a soil amendment for lawns and gardens. While you can plant directly into this product, we highly recommend mixing it with your existing soil. 50/50 is an excellent choice for people who want the benefits of the compost and need to add volume to their lawn or garden.
