Topsoil & Compost
CompostWe supply compost made to enhance soil fertility. High-quality and environment-friendly compost are made without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Thus, you should not have to worry about the presence of chemicals in your soil. The best quality compost is made of only 100% clean leaf clippings.
Mushroom compost is also referred to as spent mushroom compost since it is obtained from the remains of mushroom farming. It is mainly used as a mulch and soil conditioner to improve ornamental and vegetable gardens. It has a good alkalinity base to help neutralize the soil.
Most gardeners use mushroom compost to improve the moisture content of their soil and in breaking down clay. The most commercially available type is the mushroom substrate that is usually a mix of chicken or horse manure and gypsum or wheat straw. After the materials are composted, they are sterilized to improve the quality before they are taken to the goring trays.
Mushroom compost is sold as conditioners for turfs and lawns where it is used to improve the soil quality. They are equally useful in raised bed mediums and planting mis where it helps to improve water retention.
Benefits of Quality CompostingQuality composting offers many benefits. Some of the most important reasons for using them are as follows:
- Helps enrich the soil and retain soil moisture
- Prevents plant diseases and attacks from pests
- Promotes fungi and bacterial growth that break down organic material

TopsoilWhether you need it for your garden or lawn, there are different types of topsoil to choose from to achieve the desired results. Screened and unscreened topsoil are the two main categories.
Unscreened TopsoilThis type of topsoil is meant to be used as it is. The soil is excavated from a site and is perfect for filling or leveling low areas. It is not sifted or broken down and can contain weeds, roots, rocks, and sticks. It is recommended for the following applications:
- Hole filling
- Wall support
- Maintenance & construction tasks
- Raised bed filler
Screened TopsoilThis type of topsoil has undergone sifting, screening, and removal of all the debris including roots and weed. It is perfectly suited for gardening, as it mixes well with potting soils, fertilizer, and compost. It is also loose and can be easily amended for drainage. Screened topsoil is suited for the following applications:
- Lawn preparation
It can also be used as a walkway base. Our topsoil has been screened out for uniform consistency. It is ideally suited for top dressing your garden or lawn or patching bare spots on your lawn. It can also be used for loosening heavy soils and improving the moisture retention of your current soil.
