High Country Compost

High Country Compost™, a Class I quality compost, is a stabilized organic material that can be used with all plant types and in any type of soil (sandy to clay). This compost (screened to 1/2 inch) greatly enhances overall soil structure and improves movement of air and water within the soil — essential to healthy plant growth.

High Country Compost is produced from a combination of several feedstocks, including beetle kill wood waste, biosolids, and at times, treatment plant residuals. This product meets EPA 40 CFR 503 standards.

When salts are a critical design factor, High Country Compost™ is the compost of choice. Low salts also mean that you can safely double the amount of compost used and still have vigorous plant growth. Salt in High Country Compost™ is primarily from nutrient salts and not sodium chloride, as indicated by an ag index greater than 10.

Top Dressing

Our Top Dressing is screened to 1/4 inch; it's ideal for top dressing in lawn care. This product is a Class I compost with a proven track record of performance, produced from a combination of several feedstocks, including beetle kill wood waste, biosolids and treatment plant residuals. Our Top Dressing meets EPA 40 CFR 503 standards.
