Humax Turf Soil builder
Hu-Max Turf Soil Builder is a rich blend of nutritional, aged humus mixed with essential supplements to form a complete soil for turf applications. It is the perfect mix for planting new grass from seed or sod, repairing damaged and bare spots, or adding organic matter to tired and stressed lawns.

It also buffers turf against salt concentrations, improves germination, and inhibits leaching.

Fertilome peat moss is an excellent soil amendment because of its capacity to retain water, aerate the soil and it’s completely natural. Sphagnum peat is the answer to both compact and loose soil conditions. All soils can benefit from the addition of peat moss. It is also used in compost bins to enhance decomposition and reduce odor. It adds body to light and sandy soil, aerates heavy and clay soil, protects the soil from drying out and hardening, lowers soil PH, and saves water.

 

Yum Yum MixYum Yum Mix
Yum Yum Mix is a very good soil amendment/organic fertilizer from Soil Menders.  It is a blend of alfalfa meal, cottonseed meal, kelp meal, colloidal clay, green sand, and trace minerals that provide nutrients and support soil building activity.  Yum Yum Mix contains 2% of nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and a broad spectrum of micro nutrients required for all plant growth.  We carry Yum Yum Mix in 5, 12 and 25 pound bags and find it works quite well in vegetable and flower beds.

Manure is readily available in our area but one must be sure to use composted manure regardless of the source.  Horse, cow, and sheep manure are considered the “coolest” of the agricultural manures with chicken and turkey considered the “hottest”.  Poultry manure does not contain seed due to the grinding by the gizzard but it is often very high in urea and other plant damaging salts.  The seed problem in horse, cow, and sheep manure as well as the presence of any harmful salts can be overcome by thorough composting.  We offer composted cow manure in 1 cubic foot bags for consistency and convenience.

Native Roots has joined forces with Durango Compost Company to produce an organic, manure free compost product that is perfect for our local soils.  Slightly acidic, plenty of organic material, and a sight nitrogen charge make this a great “clay buster” and garden soil amendment.  Made from local products, our compost will help your garden and help the environment.  We have it available in bags and bulk this spring.
