Healthy soil is the key to healthy plants
Here at Coast of Maine we are proud of the quality and consistency of our compost-based soils. Compost, we believe (naturally decomposed organic matter) is the key ingredient.
Ours are made using carefully designed and tested recipes which include the very best ingredients (sustainably sourced from pristine ocean waters and local farms) combined with rigorous quality controls. We never use biosolids, municipal or household waste. Close attention to detail with frequent turning, sampling and testing plus a lengthy aging and curing process produces dark, rich compost.
We believe Monhegan Blend™ Organic & Natural Lawn Soil is the ideal soil amendment for reconditioning lawns, overseeding, patching and filling holes. It can also be used in beds and gardens. Monhegan Blend™ is carefully formulated to provide the balance between structure, water retention, drainage and aeration. It provides your lawn and grounds all the rich and diverse soil they need.
We use all natural ingredients
Monhegan Blend is a dark, all-purpose organic top soil made from composted manure, sphagnum peat moss, and aged bark. Our manures come from several large local farms near our production facilities. These are composted and combined with sphagnum peat moss. The result is a naturally light-weight, easy-to-use soil.
Follow these few, simple steps
To recondition poor garden soil, work 2 inches into the top 4 to 6 inches of soil. To maintain healthy soils and for heavy feeders like roses and most vegetables, 1 inch of Monhegan Blend is sufficient. For normal feeders like herbs and flowering plants, 1/2 inch will do.
Thoroughly rake any dry or bare spots in your lawn, removing thatch, stones and debris. Fill in with Monhegan Blend, lightly tamp down, smooth over with a rake, seed, mulch and water.
Filling holes & low spots:
Fill any low spots or depressions in an established lawn with Monhegan Blend. Make sure to overfill the hole, then lightly tamp it down, smooth it over with a rake, seed, mulch and water.
On any well established lawn, top dress 1/4″ to 1/2″ of Monhegan Blend at least once a year, in the spring or late fall. Apply with a spreader or broadcast by hand, lightly rake to level, tamp or roll, seed (where required) and water.
