Lawn Soils | Commercial Quality and Premium Seed Quality

We manufacture two types of organic lawn soil.

Commercial Quality and Premium Seed Quality lawn soil. The commercial quality lawn soils are often called Contractor Grade or Industrial Grade.

Our Premium Seed Quality lawn soil exceeds the typical landscape architect's specification with considerably more organic content.

Our Commercial Quality lawn soil meets the typical landscape architect’s specification with emphasis on the Textural Qualities to ensure the soil is friable and easily workable.

Top Dressing soil mix is designed to improve poor quality lawn soil and assist with water retention and nutrients.

Commercial Quality Lawn Soil

This lawn soil contains 20-25% organic content by volume.

We use compost not manure in all of our soil mixes as we have found that manures tend to have too many weed seeds in them.

At times we may blend small amounts of natural topsoil into our commercial quality soil depending on the time of the year. Our pH for lawn soils generally runs between 6.8 and 7.2.

Premium Seed Quality Lawn Soil

EARTHCO is the only processor in the area that manufacturer a specific seed quality organic lawn soil. We have been manufacturing this soil mix for a number of years and have enjoyed great success.

This lawn soil contains 30-35% organic content by volume.

We use compost not manures in all of our soil mixes as we have found manure tend to have too many weed seeds in them, a particular nuisance and eye sore during the germination and early stages of growth for grass seeds. Manures require several years of curing time, often in open fields, where they become a host for any seeds blowing in the wind.

Conversely, compost is cured in 3 to 4 months and has far less opportunity to become a host for weed seeds. Our pH for lawn soils generally runs between 6.8 and 7.2.

Top Dressing for Lawns

Our top dressing soil blend is an enhanced version of our premium seed quality organic lawn soil with an organic content by volume of 50%.

Note: This soil mix is similar to our Commercial Garden Soil but dow not contain peat as peat lowers the pH.

This soil blend is enhanced with medium and coarse sands as well as with compost.

This blend can be simply spread in thin layers over existing lawns, which ideally should be cut short or for best results applied immediately after thatching.

The latter is helpful for lawns in clay soil and with minimal topsoil. Application immediately after thatching permits the sandy soil and nutrients to be applied deeper into the soil and assists with water retention and nutrients.

Our top dressing mix is composed of 60% seed quality organic lawn soil, 10% medium and coarse sand, 30% additional compost. The percentages of composition will vary depending on the texture and characteristics of the mixture but generally contains approximately 50% organic content by volume.

Top dressing should be applied in 1/2 inch to 1 inch increments. Do not roll the soil, leave it loose.
