Trees and shrubs: Mix compost with soil from the hole dug for planting a tree or shrub. Use a mixture of 1/3 compost to 2/3 soil. Use this mixture to fill the bottom of the hole around the rootball and water.
Mulch: In early summer, spread a 2”- 6” layer of compost on the soil around plants and trees. This may help conserve water and protect against soil erosion. When spreading compost around trees, start roughly 6” from the trunk and work outward. Avoid any direct contact with the trunk.
On the lawn: For new lawns put 4” - 6” of compost on the soil and till to a depth of 5” - 8”. For existing lawns: Apply a thin layer up to a 1/4” of fine compost on the lawn and water it in well. This can be done year round to reduce watering needs.
To fill in patches: Create a mixture of 30% compost, 60% top soil, 10% grass seed. Spread a 2”- 4” layer over the patch and water thoroughly.
