Monkey Hair Mulch

Our Monkey Hair Mulch is fully composted from locally sourced materials. This long lasting mulch has a rich brown color and is free of weed seeds. It is extremely durable and long lasting which makes it perfect for erosion control and weed suppression. It’s a great walk-on mulch on pathways, especially for folks wearing high heels at backyard events where the coarser mulch tends to make it difficult to find even footing. This mulch has a fine texture which is really attractive in flower beds and throughout the landscape. Try some today!

Check out the CalRecycle report on the use of hardwood and compost mulching around avocados and citrus. This document provides results from a multi-year study on the value of using both non-composted and composted landscape trimmings to support young tree development, particularly for root rot disease suppression in avocados.

San Pasqual Valley Premium Coco Coir

Now Available in Bulk – $$$ Savings!

Coco Coir

San Pasqual Valley now offers the highest quality coco coir available on the market today in bulk quantities. Derived from coconut husks, coco coir has become an increasingly popular natural, organic, sustainable growing media It can be used as a stand-alone substrate or a component of custom growing media blends. It is superior to peat moss for it’s water holding capacity and can retain 8-9 times its weight in water. Our coir holds nutrients similar to sphagnum peat moss but retains higher amounts of nutrients with less run-off. Our coir is sourced in Mexico and compared with Asian coir, it is low in sodium and very rich in potassium. Research by the University of California has demonstrated soilborne disease suppressive properties associated with our coir which is extremely important in greenhouse and nursery production. A minimum of 35% coir in the potting media is recommended for plants susceptible to root diseases. With a pH of 6.0 it is also an ideal growing media for acid loving plants such as blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and ornamentals like azaleas and camelias. Coir is an ideal substrate for cannabis and hemp production and is widely used in hydroponic systems.

In addition to its horticultural benefits, it makes an ideal horse bedding material where it has been reported to reduce flies in stables, reduce diseases of hooves, maintain dry, comfortable bed support and last up to 5 months before it needs to be replaced. 

We offer a “medium grade” coir which is the all-purpose product widely used in fruit berry production, hydroponic growing media for tomatoes, cucumbers and other vegetables or as a potting soil amendment or for nursery propagation. You can propagate in tray cativites 2 ¼” or greater.

Call 760-746-4769 for more details on this amazing natural and versatile media and how we can assist you with your growing needs.  Comes ready to deliver in compressed shrink wrapped bales that will produce 4 cubic yds of expanded, ready to use material.

Fire-proofing Your Property with Composted Mulch

Fireproofing Landscape | SPVS

Dr. K was recently featured in a Ramona Sentinel article for providing guidance and tips to the Ramona Garden Club on choosing the best garden materials for fire protection at their August 8th meeting. During his presentation, he emphasized that selecting the least combustible landscape materials is the key to protecting your landscape from fire threats. Our composted mulch is a great choice for this application. For more information and tips on fire-proofing your landscape with our composted mulch, check out Dr. K’s blog post. He also suggests that you read the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s, “The Combustibility of Landscape Mulches Publication”.

Compost is the product manufactured through the controlled aerobic, biological decomposition of biodegradable materials. The product has undergone mesophilic and thermophilic temperatures, which significantly reduces the viability of pathogens and weed seeds (in accordance with EPA 40 CFR 503 standards) and stabilizes the carbon such that it is beneficial to plant growth. Compost is typically used as a soil amendment, but may also contribute plant nutrients. (AAPFCO definition, official 2018)  Finished compost is typically screened to reduce its particle size, to improve soil incorporation.”
