Product Description

This rich compost can be used on its own as a mulch topping to add that desirable black top dressed appearance to planting beds, or ideally as a boost to increase the organics of poorer quality depleted native soils.

Finally a natural alternative to chemical fertilizers. Our soil amender is like a caffeine boost for your soil! If you're looking for the best soil amender then this is it! MyGardenBag is the only residential distributor in the Lower Mainland, this isn't your typical soil amender. We do not sell local landfill greenwaste soils. .

Safe, effective and environmentally friendly, it’s ideal for use in landscaping, vegetable gardens and potting soil. A great way to Boost your nutrient deficient soil.

 Benefits -

Boosts soil nutrients | Improve soil texture | Improve planter bed appearance and colour | Alternative to mulch | Sustainable natural alternative to chemical fertilizers | 100% recycled organics

Where to use -

  • Around existing established shrubs, planter beds. Top dressing for that manicured look.
  • Work into existing soil to boost nutrient levels or leave on top and the nutrients will slowly wash down into the root system.

Where not to use -

  • Not recommended as 100% soil for new seedlings/starter plants as the nitrogen content is to high. If soil amender is mixed 50/50 with your existing soil then it's fine to plant new seedlings.

How to use  -

The secret of soil conditioning is getting the right nutrients right to where your plants need them – at the roots. Soil amender can be used to top dress lawns, mulch flower beds or be mixed right into the soil for excellent results. And using it is easy...

  • flower beds and veggie gardens: Mix one inch of amender with the top four inches of soil.
  • established flower/shrub beds: Top dress with 1.5" of amender.
  • roses, tubers and bulbs: Use one part amender to four parts soil.
  • trees and shrubs: Placing amender over the existing soil surface will help maintain moisture and improve native soil conditions, minimize weed competition and provide a well-groomed dark uniform appearance. Top dress with 1.5" - 2" of amender.
  • new lawns: Cover the ground with one or two inches and work into existing soil a few inches. Follow normal planting and sodding procedures. Do not use as primary soil, you must mix it in.
  • established lawns: Mow your lawn shorter than normal, spread 1/4 - 1/2 inch of amender and rake it in or use a broom and get it down to the base. While raking in remove any small bits of wood and anything that doesnt drop down. Water well! Leave the lawn for several mowing cycles as required, you don’t want to suck up all that great new soil with the grass clippings. Mulching your lawn clippings is acceptable and let it all fall back on the surface. Apply in fall or early spring. Water well
  • container/planter mixes: Amend potting mix to 20 per cent amender, or top dress existing planters with a 1/4" - 1 " as required

    My plants are happy, and I'm so glad that I don't have to haul bags and bags of compost from the garden centre. Perfect!

  3. Best find ever! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2013

    I absolutely love the service this company offers and highly recommend it. The ordering was easy, deliver was right away - they worked with my schedule. I worked in between rain showers and the bag was so easy to just close and use when the rain subsided. I covered my lawn with the Nutrify Soil and the growth this past 3 weeks has been terrific. I bought the mulch too - my flowerbeds look amazing.


  4. Gorgeous and super-easy to work with... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Apr 2013

    Because it (Nutrify Soil amender) arrives in the bag it's dry and easy to use. I agree with Greg C, nice and clean. It's only been a few weeks but seems to stay completely black which makes a spectacular visual contrast to my plants.

    The service is as good as the product. 2 days before delivery Gord called me to say he'd looked up my address on Google street view and asked for clarification. I really appreciated the due diligence ahead of time to ensure the delivery would be exactly where I wanted it.

    My only complaint - (and it's a minor one!) is about bag return which is not convenient. I'd prefer a deposit system or something.

    If the soil keeps looking this good the rest of the year I'll be purchasing a bag for top-dressing every year!

    Thank you!

    The delivery bag system is great for controlling the soil.I was able to keep it where I wanted and keep it dry as I spread it out.The soil is very clean,without pieces of wood,bits of plastic or other contaminants.

  7. Love this service! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Oct 2012

    I've only just applied the soil amender, so I can't speak to the quality of the soil, or what it will do for my plants (although it looks awesome!). The service is terrific though. So convenient and if you need to you can take your time without having to worry about the soil making a mess or washing away. No messy clean up after either.
