Locally Made Bulk Soil and Garden Amendments
Do you have a farm, garden or green thumb?
Pinecrest Stables is pleased to be contributing to Vancouver's Green Initiative by offering soil made from the perfect mix of naturally aged, regularly turned, hot-composted hay, pine shavings, sand and horse manure. The compost, manure and soil are free of sprays, soil additives and other such agents. This soil is made the "old-fashioned way": naturally, not artificially heat-treated, via the hot composting method. Hot composting is a heritage method of natural, chemical-free weed seed control, that nourishes rather than destroys the microbes that maintain the delicate balance needed in a healthy garden and lawn. This productive soil biome, nourished by organic nutrients and oxygen from regular turning over several months, function to create a finely aged garden soil. This dark, probiotic-rich soil is suitable for fruit, vegetable and flower beds, property front and backyard staging, topdressing lawns, and more. For those interested in the composted manure alone, Composted Manure/Pine Shavings mixture, as well as Fresh In-Aged Manure, are also available on request. To further reduce our footprint, we also sell bags of hay sweepings (or better yet, bring a bin or bags from home!) suitable for mulching overwintering flower/tree gardens, blueberries, raspberries, winter veggies and cold-frame gardens. This can be reserved with short notice. Soil for the Spring can be reserved in advance with a holding deposit and set delivery date. We welcome you to increase the health of your garden, instilling a healthy population of happy, beneficial microbes!
