The Coast of Maine difference
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 use all natural ingredients
We believe Schoodic Blend™ Organic & Natural Composted Manure Blend is the ideal soil amendment for all your beds and gardens. It is carefully formulated to provide balance between structure, water retention, drainage and aeration for growing vegetables, annual and perennial flowers, trees and shrubs, as well as on lawns. It provides your garden and grounds the rich and diverse soil they need.
Follow these few, simple steps
Amending beds & gardens
To recondition poor garden soil, work 2 inches into the top 4 to 6 inches of soil. To maintain
established beds and gardens, (for roses, most vegetables, herbs and flowers) top-dress with
1 – 2 inches of Schoodic Blend™.
Planting trees & shrubs:
Dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the root ball. Place the plant in the bottom so the stem is centered and the crown slightly above the rim of the hole. If the root ball is burlap wrapped, make sure to cut away the top wrapping to free the stem. Fill in with equal parts of Schoodic Blend™ and soil, tamping around the plant. Once trees and shrubs are established, apply an organic plant food around drip line of the plant.
Schoodic Blend™ is also a good choice for revitalizing a lawn. Use it as a top-dressing any time during the growing season, then water in. For general over-seeding and lawn repairs, we recommend thoroughly mixing seed with Schoodic Blend™ in a wheel-barrow before spreading. This is best done in the fall, when the soil is warm, and rain more consistent. In either case, use a plastic leaf rake to spread the compost evenly. Use one bag of our soil per 10 – 15 square feet of lawn.
