Filling up our trusty HB trailer with compost for delivery to local schools

Over the past two weeks, Los Berros Elementary in Lompoc along with Orcutt Jr. High, Lakeview Jr. High, and the Boys & Girls Club in Santa Maria, have received help for their parched soil in the form of compost and topsoil.  

Engel & Gray, Inc. has donated more than 430 cubic feet of compost and 375 cubic feet of topsoil to these schools in an effort to counteract effects of California's high temps and drought conditions. Adding organic matter in the form of compost and topsoil helps improve and protect valuable soil and most importantly, helps conserve valuable water resources.

Using compost for the first time??

There’s a lot of information on the web about using compost.  Some of it is accurate; some is not. If you are a new compost user, here are some things to know:

1. Compost is a concentrate.  Never use full strength. If preparing a mix for containers or bedding, use no more than 30 percent compost.  If you want to improve your soil you should incorporate 2 inches into soil, till to a depth of 6-8 inches — no more than 1/3 of the total impacted layer.

2. One of the most common mistakes of a new compost user is over-watering.  Compost will hold a lot of water.  Turn off your timers.  Water only when your turf and plants need it.

3. Do not heat treat or fumigate Harvest Blend Compost or compost amended soil.  Unlike the home composting pile, attainment of high temperatures is inherent in the commercial composting process.  Subjecting compost products to another round of high heat and/or fumigation will kill the microbial populations contributing to soil health, greatly diminishing the efficacy of the product.

Learn from Joe Lamp'l, of Growing a Greener World, how Certified Compost is the ideal product for all landscape projects.


Healthy soil is a 'tool' that mankind needs to survive. Healthy soil is one of nature's key tools in recycling, cleaning, and preserving our environment. this living, breathing organism that surrounds us makes all life, as we know it, possible.We need to save the soil, not only for plants, but for people as well. Soil is made up of many organic and inorganic components, living and nonliving. Soil organic matter is transient in nature and must be continually replinished. Locally produced, recycled organic matter is abundantly available to do just that in the form of COMPOST! Compost is a great tool but not all compost is created equal, which is why everyone should specify "Certified Compost" for all landscape projects, no matter the size.
