Fall Tips - for the fall gardening season, you should plan to topdress your yard with BioFine or ReGrow compost and mulch your plants with SoilBuilder or ReGrow compost from Deschutes Recycling. Compost is an essential ingredient to winterizing your lawn and garden and will help your plants come back healthy and strong after the winter.
Mulching for winter: Around the time your perennials are dying back for winter and the ground is freezing, you should mulch around your plants with a few inches of SoilBuilder. The dark compost will help insulate the roots and attract sunlight in the spring helping the soil warm a little more quickly, while releasing nutrients for your awakening plants. You will also have moisture-holding mulch in place for the coming heat of summer. For excellent, ready-to-plant soil, till 2-3 inches of compost into beds you will plant the following spring or summer.
