Garden Mix

$35.00

Ready to use and nutrient-dense. 

This mix is composed of 3 essential ingredients: Screened Topsoil, Compost Mix, and Peat Moss. We chose compost mix and peat moss to be used as a central ingredient for our garden mix due to its fertilization and water retention properties.

    A soil analysis is regularly used in agriculture. It's a simple way of getting an overview of the soil quality.

    What you get.

    • Client information
    • Date the sample was received
    • Nutrient Analysis
    • Soil quality
    • Fertilizer recommendations

    Nutrient Analysis

    • Measurements of the nutrients (ppm)
    • Nutrients are given a grade of one of the following | Excess | Adequate | Marginal | Deficient |.
    • Deficient soils will likely see the most improvement in yield by adding the specific nutrient.

    Soil Quality

    • Organic matter - Darker soils have more (that's a good thing).
    • CEC (cation exchange capacity) is the ability of soil to hold positively charged nutrients | Calcium | Magnesium | Potassium | Sodium | Hydrogen | Aluminum | Organic matter is high in CEC
    • Soil Texture - a combination of | Sand | Silt | Clay | the soil texture effects water holding capacity. A higher capacity requires less watering.
    • Salinity refers to salt levels. High levels can hinder plant growth.
    • pH - | Acidic | Neutral | Alkaline | the closer to neutral the easier for plants to absorb nutrients.

    Fertilizer Recommendations

    • Based on seasonal rainfall.
    • Recommended steps for a good yield of crops.
    • Not always cost-effective solutions.

    As the topsoil used in this mix is a natural product, there may be traces of weed seeds within and it is not a guaranteed weed-free product. Although the topsoil is screened, weed seeds cannot be removed in the screening process along with other unwanted ingredients.
