Late fall or before planting in the spring is best for application timing. Find out more tips by downloading our technology sheets here.
Existing Flower Beds – Add about 1.25 cm (1/2”) of compost and work thoroughly and uniformly into the soil 15 cm (6”) deep. Water until the entire root zone is saturated.
New Beds – Add 5 cm (1”) of compost and mix to at least a 30 cm (1ft) depth, then plant and water the flowers. For best results wait 4 weeks before planting.
Vegetable Gardens – Apply about 2 cm (¾”) of compost and mix to a depth of 20 cm (8”).
*Be careful not to apply too much compost at planting time as many vegetables won’t germinate in abundance of nitrogen in the soil. For best results apply at least 4 weeks before planting.*
New Lawns – Apply 5 cm (2″) of compost and mix thoroughly and uniformly to a depth of 30 cm (1ft) before you sod or seed your lawn. Water thoroughly. For best results apply at least 4 weeks before seeding.
Established Lawns – Aerate the entire area before topdressing. Rake 1.25 cm (1/2”) of compost evenly over the area. Water thoroughly. For best results apply in early spring or fall.
Mulching Around Trees – Arrange the mulch so that water flows away from the tree trunk. When mulching, choose a coarse-textured compost to reduce weeds and provide a thick cover to the area. Blend 1 part compost to 4 parts wood chip mulch. For best results apply in early spring or fall.
Tree Planting – Dig a hole about 5 times the diameter of the root ball of the tree. Before planting, mix 1 part compost and 6 part original soil and mix thoroughly outside of the hole. Place the tree in the hole and use the compost-soil mixture as backfill around the root ball. Water thoroughly. For best results, add mulch around the tree.

Biosolids are extremely beneficial for land application because they’re rich in nutrients, a way to avoid chemical fertilizers and share similar soil benefits as compost. They’re a green and valuable source of nitrogen and phosphorus.
Biosolids are produced by going through an extensive recycling process to stabilize and treat domestic waste. Simply put, wastewater is transformed into nutrient-rich soil amendment and goes through very strict provincial regulation guidelines for chemicals, metals, and pathogens.
A common misconception is that biosolids are the same as raw sewage waste, however, biosolids are actually stabilized, and highly treated to destroy pathogens. Plus, it’s another way to renew and reuse waste product.
