Preparing for application
1. Uniformly apply compost one and one half (1.5” to two (2”) inches (4.70 to 6.20 cubic yards per 1000 sq. ft.) over entire area.
2. Following the application of compost, avoid a layering affect by incorporating the compost as deep as 5 to 6 inches while tilling it into the soil.
3. Rake surface smooth prior to planting. Soil surface should be firm and free of clods, stones, roots or other foreign objects.
4. Water thoroughly after planting.
