Black Gold – Cole’s Compost Top-Dressing

If your lawn is looking a little tired, consider a top-dressing of Black Gold, Cole’s highly organic compost. As the hot summer winds down and we move through August into the fall, it is important to start thinking ahead to the next season. There are many benefits to using compost and applying organic matter to your property. Cole Landscaping is proud to offer this all-natural top-dressing service.

The Process

First we will core aerate the complete property. Then we will broadcast this highly organic matter throughout the area along with seed. This gives you a much greener lawn through the fall and it will come back in the spring lush and beautiful.

What is compost and why should you use it?

Compost is the product resulting from the controlled biological decomposition of organic material that has been sanitized through the generation of heat and stabilized to the point that it is beneficial to plant growth. Above all, organic matter is vital to productive soils and healthy plant growth. Compost is certainly an excellent source of organic matter that promotes biologically active soil by adding beneficial microorganisms.

What else can compost do for your lawn?

  • Incorporates slow release nutrients in an organic form
  • Leaves pore spaces behind for roots to colonize as it breaks down
  • Improves soil moisture retention
  • Adds life and organic matter to the soil
  • Allows micro-organisms to thrive and multiply to fight many soil-borne diseases
