How much does it weigh? One sf raised bed needs how many bags?

How much does it weigh? One sf raised bed needs how many bags?
Asked by: Mike
I guess their weight between 15 and 20 pounds per bag. Each bag is 1cu foot. A 4' x 4' x 12" raised bed would require 16 of these bags to fill it completely. However, keep in mind that if your doing SF beds this product should only occupy 1/3 of your bed soil. So, 16 x 1/3 = 5.33 bags. The rest should be 1/3 peat moss or coco coir and 1/3 Vermiculite. I personally do not bother with weight of the bag unless I'm worried I can't handle the heavy lifting. For example 3cu ft is too heavy for me. 1.5 cu. feet and under I can still handle, 2 cu. feet maybe. As the years go by, I don't follow SF strictly either, I estimate. So far I've had no adverse effect. If your raised bed is a different size Google www gardener dot com How much soil do I need, they have a calculator there.

Is it safe to use on a vegetable patch?

Asked by: Sanjay
I noticed after I got home that the bag I bought last year stated on it that it was ok to use on ornamental plants but not to use on vegetable plants (small print), so it was absolutely useless to me. They must use steer manure from dairies or cow farms that shoot antibiotics, growth hormones or other "harmful to humans" vaccines that come out in their manure and can be transferred to the plants, that we then eat. Their "Earthgro" branding is simply wrong-headed and confuses people about the contents. HD should do a better job of labeling their bags of crap that are NOT ORGANIC.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value I have used this stuff for years and have never found anything more than a trivial amount of thicker wood pieces or stones in it. Since it’s composted by piling it on the ground, some stones will always be scraped up and finding a few in a bag shouldn’t mean your life has been ruined, especially over a product that costs about one dollar. Make a half inch screen sifter and use it. One big steer manure problem that you don’t have with horse or dairy manure is salt, and this product claims to be over 50% steer manure. Steer manure comes from feed lots and a well managed feed lot adds roughly half a percent of salt to the steer feed to encourage lots of urination to prevent the high-grain-percentage feed from clogging urethras, a common mechanical problem with steers castrated at birth. Cattle are serious salt freaks: they even add salt blocks to keep the cattle from licking the salty manure and urine. The compost’s texture seems mature. If you use this in any heavy amount, be sure to soak the compost and soil to death in order to leach the salts down. You’ll also be leaching down the colloids, but they’re far bigger than salt ions and won’t wash out as easily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I needed finer material I was planting Rye Grass. I wanted my top coat to be smooth and level. I always sift my Steer Manure through a 1/2" hardware cloth sifter. There is a lot of product in these bags that can not be broken down to that small. I poured a third of the bag into my sifter at a time, then shook the heck out of it as I spread it on my lawn area. After sifting, I would have about 35% of the product that would not break up into small enough pieces to pass through the sifter. The pieces that would not pass were about 1 inch, sometimes much more. No matter how hard I tried to smash up the pieces that were too large, they would not break apart. The mix contained perhaps 5% total of: Rocks, Wood, Other junk. If none of the above described would bother your use, then this is your product. Otherwise you may want to find something else. In summary, for me, I had to dispose of 35% of the bag. I gave the big clumps to someone else that did not mind the large pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased 18 bags of Earthgro Steer Manure Blend from the Yuba City, California Home Depot last... I purchased 18 bags of Earthgro Steer Manure Blend from the Yuba City, California Home Depot last week. The contents of each bag was very consistent, black, fine, dirt, that had no odor, and certainly, no steer manure smell. I only found a few 1.5 inch long, small, round pieces of wood, that resembled very small branch pieces.. There were no rocks, plastic, glass, trash, etc., found in all of the 18 bags.. I liked it so much, I am going to purchase another 18 bags for the front yard.. Thank you, Earthgo !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality depends on where you live Read the reviews and note which states the "bad" reviews are from. This is not a universal product made at one location and distributed across the country. Here in Colorado manure is available locally from the cattle finishing farms and it is real manure. As you can see the reviews are quite different from California. No one would transport tons of cattle manure across the country to make a $1.50 bag of manure blend. Any available real manure in CA would be used by the farms producing "organic" vegetables and fruit. So they probably bulk-up ("blend") the bag with locally available material, rocks from all of the rock slides. This is just like the "top soil". Here in CO it is largely pine bark, in Florida it is material from local trees and shrubs, north in Ohio & Michigan its real peat. These products are produced locally under contract with the supplier and put in the same bags.

Probably due to being fresher them I've purchased before. Bags were clean and intact and not leaking. All and all, was very happy with purchase. I use these to bed down rose's for winter. Always put around base to feed them for good growth next year. Make sure not to put too close or may burn them.

Was particularly happy with this purchase in because the manure was fresh and not lumpy, which is what occurs when the product is not fresh and has sat in a pile for a long time. This purchase was therefore easy to spread over a rye reseeded lawn as well as two bags were used under several camellias and artichoke plants.

If the native soil is good I use a 50-50 mix if the soil is not good I use only 1/3 native. You can use it right out of the bag for planting lawn. Grass seeds seem to love it.
