Featured Products for February
Grower’s Mulch is very versatile and our most popular composted mulch. You can apply it to orchards, garden beds, and anywhere in the landscape to conserve water and suppress weeds. This long lasting mulch is also perfect for erosion control when applied at 3” to 4” thick making it ideal for use on slopes and paths.
Grower’s Mulch is a good media for building stormwater sediment filtering Berms to help manage the excessive rains in Southern California right now. You can also build Stacked Pyramids and Sediment Traps using our Compost Socks to easily manage water and mitigate erosion on your property.
For more information about managing stormwater, check out Dr. K’s posts on Compost Socks and Stormwater and Compost Blanket Solutions to Combat Problem Areas During Rainy Season. Click on the link to access additional tips and information shared by the California Stormwater Quality Association.
This product is SB 1383 compliant.
Winter is the perfect time to add Valley’s Best Compost® to your vegetable and flower gardens to give your plants a head start when the growing season begins.
It is a also great time to top-dress your lawn so the rains can help mellow the compost to enrich the soil for Spring! Learn how you can get a healthy, amazing looking lawn by using the tips in Dr. K’s blog post.
And don’t forget erosion control during the winter (especially this year)! Valley’s Best Compost® can be used to help manage erosion during these recent winter rains. Dr. K shows you how in his video on “Compost Erosion Control Blankets”.
This product is SB 1383 compliant.
