Liberty Top Soil
Our topsoil is made locally by blending high-quality humus compost made partly from food waste with a sandy loam to create a premium finished product that is easily crumbled, free of rocks and debris and easy to work with. It is rich with organic matter and teeming with micro life to facilitate fast growth and healthy plants.
Liberty Sod Farm topsoil is comprised of 75% stable humus compost, blended with 25% sandy loam. It is suitable for direct planting and can be used in new lawn installations, planting beds, gardens and transplanting trees and shrubs into larger containers. LibertySod Farm topsoil is also ideal for patching or leveling uneven or bare spots in lawns, filling holes and trenches, and improving heavy clay soil.
Simply defined, compost is a decomposed organic matter. To match the quality of the Black soil at Liberty Sod Farm we have found a partner that uses mature compost. Mature compost is a complex organic material that has been transformed into stable humus by microorganisms.
The humus compost is thoughtfully and responsibly crafted from high-quality materials, ensuring a diverse mixture of nutrients and microorganisms in the finished product. High-quality compost helps to build healthier roots and support disease suppression.
Decomposition is performed by naturally occurring microorganisms that utilize the organic materials for their food and energy sources.
Benefits of Mature Compost
- Protects plants from disease
- Improves root growth
- Improves soil structure
- Improves drought tolerance and water retention
- Increases earthworm and microbial population
- Reduces soil compaction and crusting
Using food waste in our compost
Reducing the amount of food waste going into landfills, and composting food waste locally creates a finished product that is sustainable, responsible and can be used as an organic soil amendment.
Organic waste decaying in landfills has a negative impact both environmentally and economically. The mixture of gases that are generated in a landfill are hazardous to humans, animals, and the environment and are often contaminated. Economically, reducing the amount of food waste in landfills lowers the cost of maintaining a landfill site thus making it smaller, easier to maintain, and less polluting.
