How much/big is a cubic yard?

A cubic yard equates to roughly 27 of the 1 cu. ft bags you'd buy from a big box store. Another way to think about it, it's about enough to fill one medium size truck bed. 

What to expect for delivery?

On the day of your delivery, we will drop your compost, soil or mulch in your driveway, unless you specify otherwise! You may choose to lay out a tarp, but that is up to you. You don't need to be there for delivery.

Do I need a truck to pick up my order?

In most cases, yes. You could come down and get any quantity you want (bring a bucket, we'll sell you the compost, soil or mulch to fill it!), but in the case you're ordering 1/2 to 1 cubic yard, you'll need a standard size truck. 

I have hard Clay-like soil. What do you recommend?

Amend your soil with one of our amazing compost products. 

Compost helps improve the health of your soil. In New Mexico our soils are deficient in organic material and microbial life. Soils in NM are typically sandy (relatively large particle size) or clay (relatively small particle size). Compost is effective in improving either soil. It breaks up clay soil and improves drainage, aeration, and tilth. In sandy soils it reduces drainage and conserves water and nutrients.

What should i use to grow cannabis?

Cannabis cultivation techniques vary widely- some prefer a natural, living soil where others choose to grow in soilless mediums with fertilizer feeding schedules. Good news: we can help you to achieve either methodology.

How do I apply compost to make my lawn greener?

Top dressing your established lawn with compost in the spring or fall will give your grass the nutrients it needs to grow greener and healthier! We recommend applying a 1/2-1 inch topdressing by raking it in gently. Need help figuring out how much you need for your lawn?
