Number One Garden Mix

$44.00

All the best stuff in one mix.

(1-1-1) Topsoil, Sand, and Compost Mix. This product is a very fine and silky-like product that is excellent for areas that are in need of more water retention. Sand added to garden mixes increases the retention by acting as a sponge that soaks up the water added to the soil, while the compost mix increases the fertility of the soil and loads the soil with a vast amount of nutrients increasing crop/vegetation health. Please take note that the screened topsoil used in this mix is a 100% natural product meaning it is not weed-free garden soil.

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.
