25% Off Compost Products at Deschutes Recycling

Pick up some compost today to Topdress your lawn or Mulch your plants for the fall gardening season.  Compost is an essential ingredient to winterizing your lawn and garden. 

Deschutes Recycling compost is tested by a US Composting approved lab to ensure quality and reliability.

ReGrow Compost is $22.00 per yard - save $8 per yard

BioFine Compost is $19.00 per yard -  save $7 per yard

SoilBuilder Compost is $15.00 per yard - save $5 per yard

Mulching for winter:  Around the time your perennials are dying back for winter and the ground is freezing, you should mulch around your plants with a few inches of SoilBuilder.  The dark compost will help insulate the roots and attract sunlight in the spring helping the soil warm a little more quickly, while releasing nutrients for your awakening plants. You will also have moisture-holding mulch in place for the coming heat of summer.  For excellent, ready-to-plant soil, till 2-3 inches of compost into beds you will plant the following spring or summer.

Topdressing the lawnApply a thin layer (¼ to ½ inch) of BioFine or ReGrow compost to your lawn in the fall and again in the spring to help build up a good supply of organic matter and nutrients for the next growing season.  If you haven’t done this yet, you will be amazed at what topdressing does for your lawn!  In addition to helping your grass grow stronger and greener, it reduces thatch, makes turf more drought-resistant and saves water by helping soil hold moisture.  It also helps bare spots fill in, helps lawns fight fungal diseases, reduces your need for fertilizers and keeps fertilizers from washing away.
