FALL-ING FOR COMPOST
 

Grabbing a pumpkin spice latte shouldn’t be the only thing on your fall to-do list. It’s the perfect time to spice up your lawn or garden! Whether you’re wanting to score some big mums before they sell out, or give your lawn nutrients before the ground freezes, Grow Gold Compost can make your projects gourd-geous. 
 
THE SPICE

Grow Gold Compost has many nourishing qualities that are sure to wrap your lawn and garden projects like your comfiest sweater. Since it’s made from materials rich in nitrogen and carbon, it is an all-natural soil enhancement that will add nutrients to your projects and help them retain water. This means, you can fall back from frequent watering and chemical fertilizer. 
 
CHOOSE YOUR HAYRIDE 

Compost is easy to apply, but the hayride you choose will have its own turns to take to reach your desired destination.
 
HAYRIDE 1: Establish a new lawn  

Before seeding, create a mixture of 1-2 inches of compost with the top 3-5 inches of soil. Once seeded, apply ½ inch of the mixture to the surface of the area per week.  
 
HAYRIDE 2: Maintain your lawn  

Top with ¼ inch of compost after aerating, once or twice per year.  
 
HAYRIDE 3: Flower + Vegetable Gardens  

A few weeks prior to planting, apply a mixture of 1-2 inches of compost and 3-5 inches of soil. 
 
HOW TO HARVEST
There are three ways to harvest Grow Gold Compost: Bulk, Bag, or Retailers.
