Compost is a natural product which increases the humus in the soil. This gives a good base for the active growth of microbes which in turn makes organic nutrients available for plants. This leads to healthy plant growth which is less susceptible to pests and diseases. Compost also helps to retain water.
The compost in which mushrooms are grown is produced scientifically to very exact specifications in order to create a quality organic fertilizer.
Stanler Farms Lawn Dressing is a mixture of weed free mushroom compost and washed river sand.
The Function of lawn dressing is twofold. The first is increasing the microbes in the soil so that the lawns roots can take up the available organic nutrients in the soil. These microbes also help suppress diseases in the soil. By adding the organic content also helps the soil to retain water. Secondly lawn dressing levels out any uneven areas on your lawn.
Stanler Farms produces an organically enriched top soil. This is an ideal top soil to use when needing to fill/level an area before planting. The ratio for this combination is 30% compost to 70% soil.
Top soil is not for use on lawns. Lawn Dressing is the product to use for this.
Stanler Farms is a family business which was established in 1975, initially concentrating on maize and cattle farming. In 1985 we were approached by the largest mushroom producers in South Africa to recycle their spent compost. Because of our experience in the farming sector we were aware of the benefits of compost and the consistent quality of spent mushroom compost as we had used it on our own lands.
