    When handling larger volumes of Ultra Lawn, ensure stockpiles are covered to give protection against weather conditions and wind blown weed seeds.

    Do not mix with soil - this will destroy the weed-free properties!


    When handling larger volumes of compost, ensure stockpiles are covered to give protection against weather conditions and windblown weed seed. Apply a 50mm layer to the gardens and incorporate into the top layer of soil to improve friability of that soil and add valuable nutrients. Do not plant directly into compost.
