Free Compost / Mulch

On Long Island we have a sandy soil structure that allows water and fertilizers to drain down into the water table and run-off into our surrounding waterways. Using compost and mulch in your garden or landscape is a great way to improve soil structure and continuously provide nutrients to growing plants. Compost and mulch also retain moisture, allowing plants to better endure hot and dry weather.
