Available Products

Recology Premium Compost

Recology Premium Compost

A dark, nutrient-rich mulch containing millions of beneficial microbes that promote healthy plant life. Yard debris and food scrap feedstock are transformed into compost, then screened to sizes less than 5/8 of an inch, and cured to ensure a mature finished product that will be most beneficial for all kinds of soils. This compost is OMRI-listed for organic use and STA-certified with the US Composting Council.

Uses: 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 bark dust that, unlike bark dust, 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.

80/20 Plant Mix

80/20 Plant Mix

A mixture of 80% premium compost and 20% 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. Planters mix is an excellent choice for people who want the benefits of the compost and need to add volume to their lawn or garden.

Dark Fir Dust Bark

Dark Fir Dust Bark

A dark, nutrient-rich mulch containing millions of beneficial microbes that promote healthy plant life. Yard debris and food scrap feedstock are transformed into compost, then screened to sizes less than 5/8 of an inch, and cured to ensure a mature finished product that will be most beneficial for all kinds of soils.

Red Fir Dust Bark

Red Fir Dust Bark

Uses: Topdressing in planting beds and around lawns. Aged ground hemlock bark, available in dark and red colors, screened to ¾” and smaller.

Sandy Loam (Topsoil)

Sandy Loam (Topsoil)

A mostly sandy soil containing portions of clay, silt, and sand that is screened to an excellent consistency.

Uses: Great for filling in holes or for use as a soil amendment to assist clay soils in drainage. We do not recommend planting into the sandy loam as it has little nutritive value and tends to compact over time.
