Soil Activator

Soil Amendments

They don't call this "Clay" County for nothing!  

In many places around this area we have very compact, clay soil.   Many times you need to "amend" the soil to help your plants get a good root start into the ground.   Here are some options to consider. 

Soil Activator - A safe, natural way to help return to the soil valuable nutrients found in grass clippings and thatch.  Activator promotes chelation of available nutrients, assists in nutrient uptake and improves the growth of beneficial micro-organisms.

Cotton Boll Compost  - Using compost as mulch, in the soil or as potting media is beneficial in many ways. Compost  contains a full spectrum of essential plant nutrients. Compost helps bind clusters of soil particles, called aggregates,  which provide good soil structure. Such soil is full of tiny air channels & pores that hold air, moisture and nutrients.   Compost brings and feeds diverse life in the soil. These bacteria, fungi, insects, worms and more support healthy plant growth. Compost increases soil’s ability to retain water & decreases runoff. Runoff pollutes water by carrying soil, fertilizers and pesticides to nearby streams.

Peat Moss is a natural, organic soil conditioner that regulates moisture and air around plant roots for ideal growing  conditions, and adds body to light and sandy soil. It will help retain water, aerate heavy clay soil, reduce leaching, protect soil from hardening, and add organic material - 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.

Ferti-lome peat moss is an excellent soil admendment 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.
