How many cubic yards do I need?


Multiply square feet to cover by depth of application in inches, and by 0.0031. Example - 2000 square feet x 1/4” x 0.0031 = 1.6 cubic yard.

 

How many square feet will a cubic yard cover?


Divide 324 by depth of application in inches. Example - 1 cubic yard at 1/3” will cover 324/.333 = 972 square feet.

 

1 cubic yard of compost weighs approximately 1,000 – 1,200 pounds.

Main Uses for Compost

 

Soil Amendment & Sod Preparation

For best results, till 2-3” of SoilBuilder® into sandy soils before planting. Top dress garden with up to 1/2” a month and lightly mix into soil.


Summer and Winter Mulch

Spread 2-4” SoilBuilder® or Mulch around plants and trees, keeping it away from the base of trunks.


Lawn Top Dressing

Sprinkle about 1/4” of BioFine® or ReGrow® over lawn in the spring and fall to supply up to half your lawn’s nutrient needs and to protect it from disease.


Seed Starter

Sprinkle up to 1/2” SoilBuilder®, BioFine® or ReGrow® over grass or wildflower seeds to keep moist.


Potting Mix

Mix 1-2 parts SoilBuilder®, BioFine® or ReGrow®, 1 part vermiculite or perlite, and one part fertile soil.

 

Compost Tea

Compost tea is a great nutritional “drink” to give to your plants. To make the tea, put 5 or 6 shovels full of compost in a burlap bag. Submerge bag in a 50-gallon container and let steep for 2 to 3 days. Apply tea directly to the soil in the garden or around desired plants.
