June Gardening TipsCrusting and/or drainage issues
Crusting soil can be caused from high clay content. It can also be caused by other hydrophobic amendments, including high organic content. Our Power Plant Mix is an example of a nutrient-rich soil that can develop a crust if allowed to dry out, due to its high organic content. This can cause water runoff, keeping important water away from your plants’ roots. If you are combating soil crusting, try to not allow the soil to fully dry out. If the soil is completely crusted try wetting the soil, allowing it to drain, and then continue to water. 💧 Watering Schedule 💧
Water deeply 2-3 times per week, rather than daily. Water as early in the morning as you can, when possible. Tip: If you can’t push a 6” screwdriver into your lawn, you’re not watering enough.
“I’ve ordered flagstone, rock, and garden soil on separate occasions and each order has been pleasant. Good quality soil, no weed seed, my yard loved it. Flagstone wasn’t a bunch of weird broken bits, gorgeous color, and the whole large order was very consistent. Everyone has been very nice and helpful that I’ve spoken to and the price is very competitive, delivery on time and easy-peasy. Highly recommend!”

“I came in on a Saturday afternoon. It was cold and drizzly and the gentleman that helped me load was still very courteous and friendly and smiled the entire time! It was a really surprisingly pleasant and cost-effective experience for getting wood! (I didn’t realize your prices were so good!)”

“I have been very pleased with Highway Fuel over the years. I get a lot of soil and compost products as well as pellets in the winter. They delivered 2 truck loads of soil mix to me this morning. Their driver was terrific – he worked with me to get it unloaded in the right place and in a way that took hours off my work to move it around. Competitive prices – great people! Thank you.”
