Top Soil, Peat Moss and Compost

Use Top Soil to fill in holes or ruts and amend with compost if overseeding. Peat Moss lightens any soil. Compost adds valuable organic material to loosen heavy clay soils or improve moisture retention of sandy soils.  Use hay and straw in vegetable gardens as mulch around plants or in rows to suppress weeds.
