Sandy Loam

Sandy loam  is a mixture of soil, sand and compost. Sandy loam is ideal for starting a lawn as it retains nutrients and holds appropriate moisture content while still allowing excess water to flow freely. 


When seeding or restarting a lawn, be sure to use an appropriate fertilizer mixture. The addition of fertilizer provides the proper release of nutrients needed for accelerated growth in the Cowichan Valley.

Top Dressing

The best way to keep your plants and lawn green and healthy is to apply compost  occasionally.  Composting is preferred to using chemical fertilizers for growing naturally strong plants and gardens.. Humus is organic matter that is decomposed and recycled to create a natural fertilizer and soil enhancer.

Creating quality compost is a multi-step process where material is shredded, moistened, and regularly turned to ensure proper aeration but still hold a high heat temperature to break down organic material and destroy un-sprouted weeds.

Composted organic matter provides food for micro-organisms in the soil. These micro-organisms keep the soil healthy as they naturally condition the soil when they produce nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. These fertilizers have trace elements such as zinc, copper and boron. These are essential for plant growth.
