Compost & Seed

Compost for the Builder or Developer - How many times have you had that annoying buffer that you have had your landscaper seed six times and still doesn’t grow right. Mulch Solutions has the answer. Mix compost with seed and blow it into those bare spots and just watch your bank turn from tufts of grass to a green growing bank.

Compost as a Lawn Amendment - Many homeowners have us blow a quarter inch of compost over the lawn in early spring. This application enriches the soil, raises the PH and feeds the vegetative lawn causing it to load up on great organic nutrients while improving the topsoil layer. Our blower trucks can do this quickly and effectively. Add seed for even more productive results.

Compost as a Soil Blanket - Ever wondered how a wildflower meadow starts. Try this technique. Apply a two inch compost blanket over the area mixed with a wildflower mix. Now sit back and watch Mother Nature do her stuff. We have used this technique on storm water management areas and retention basins. Where slopes are steep a soil polymer may be used to hold the slope together until it germinates. We also use reclamation mixes in this application as required by many Virginia Counties.

Compost as a Mulch in Winter - If you have large perennial or shrub beds on your property whether you are a homeowner or a property manager and want to make your plants grow faster try this trick next fall. Once the leaves are collected install a two inch layer of compost over all your beds, then much as you normally do in spring. What you have accomplished is protecting all the plants from winters’ savagery while enriching your plant beds in leaps and bounds. The winter bed color is delightful and the best comes in the spring. Wait till you see the results.
