Now is the perfect time to score extra points on your lawn or garden! Whether you’re wanting to spruce up your planters with some mums, or give your lawn nutrients before the ground freezes, Grow Gold Compost can advance your projects to the next level. 

Grow Gold Compost has many noble qualities that are sure to rescue your lawn and garden projects. Since it’s made up of 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 it’s game-over for frequent watering and chemical fertilizer. 

Compost is easy to apply, but the quest you choose will have its own set of rules to earn extra lives for your projects.  
QUEST 1: Establish a new lawn  

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

Top with ¼ inch of compost after aerating once or twice per year.  
QUEST 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. 
There are three ways to capture Grow Gold Compost: Bulk, Bag, or Retailers.
