Rejuvenate your soil
ideal for raised beds
Top-dressing is the perfect method for fertilizing established plantings in beds, containers, lawns, and tree pits. Container plantings can have 1 to 2 inches of Bennett compost added to the top to increase moisture retention and months of fertilization.
For beds and tree-pits, add 2 to 4 inches of compost after pulling out weeds. Make sure to give your plants a couple inches buffer around the stem to prevent rotting. In the case of tree pits, take out the grass under the tree from the trunk to the drip line (where the leaves extend to), before adding the compost. Water the plants in thoroughly after applying. For a lawn, spread one-quarter to one-half inch of Bennett compost throughout the entire lawn. The nitrogen will reach the shallow roots of the grass to make it greener and more lush.
We use coconut coir and rice hulls - both remnants left over from food processing - in our potting mix instead. This combo keeps the mix light, and degrades over time, infusing additional nutrients into the soil.

Fill your bucket with the appropriate amount of water. Place compost in burlap or sock, tie the end to create a pouch and place in water. Then, mix in a cup of sugar.
Hook an AirStone up to an aquarium pump, and place the AirStone in the bottom of your bucket for aeration. If you don’t have these you can stir vigorously for a minute every few hours.
Allow the solution to aerate for 24 hours and then it is ready to use. Put the solution in a spray bottle to spray the entire plant from top to bottom, and then pour the excess tea into the soil for extra nutrients! The “tea bag” can be reused two to three times.
