Compost was really mulch in disguise
Hi there (no need to reply) –
I just wanted to let you know that the “compost” I bought (from somewhere local) was really mulch. This was the year we’d work on our yard, and we spread it everywhere, including the lawn. Our front lawn (in University Place) is kind of small and doesn’t actually go dormant like other grasses. I’ve fertilized maybe once every few years and added lime. I figured this year feeding it with the compost would be a good treat. But I noticed that the lawn DID NOT look as good this summer, and I thought the compost looked too much like mulch and was actually smothering my lawn. I googled and found this webpage that explained mulch is sometimes sold as compost and that’s bad: https://mcgillcompost.com/blog/compost-products-and-use/topsoil-mulch-compost-difference#toggle-id-3
So, I’m thatching my lawn, raking, and using the vacuum function on my leaf blower to get all of that picked up so I can start all over again! My friend recommended Walrath Supply. I’m hesitant to use Tagro.
