Gardening and landscaping are popular activities to undertake in warmer weather. As summer starts to get underway, consider using mushroom soil for your Anne Arundel County landscapes. Mushroom soil is also known as compost. Here at Lehnhoff’s Landscaping, we are proud to now offer mushroom soil delivered right to your door. Read on to learn more about how mushroom soil can benefit your landscape.
Just What Is Mushroom Soil?
Because it’s organic, mushroom soil can be a great boost to your existing soil. Your gardens will flourish with all the extra nutrients you’ll be introducing. It is a plant fertilizer that takes its time to do its job, so you know it will last. Components of mushroom soil go beyond just plain old mushrooms, though. Hay, cobs of corn, and droppings from chickens or horses are typical ingredients. In addition, gypsum, lime, and even moss may be added to the mix.
How Can You Use It in Your Gardens and Landscapes?
You’ll often find bags of mushroom soil labeled as either SMC for spent mushroom compost or SMS for spent mushroom substrate. While it’s possible to get this material from your local hardware store, consider having it delivered from your friendly neighborhood landscaping company. Chances are, you’ll save far more money that way, and you’ll have more to spend on updating your landscaping just in time for the June bloom.
Use it in your gardens. Add it to your lawns. Even plants you keep in containers can benefit from it. Learn how it can benefit gardens, lawns, and plants below:
The Benefits of Mushroom Soil
- It’s Affordable: Compared to other types of fertilizers, mushroom soil can be incredibly affordable. At Lehnhoff’s, we offer it for $33 per yard. You can get same day delivery or even place special orders. Split loads are available, but if you need it in bulk, please expect a minimum order of 3 tons and a wait time of 24-48 hours for delivery.
- Makes the Soil More Productive: This soil makes your average soil or mulch much more productive. The soil is richer in nutrients and promotes healthier, hardier plants.
