Steer manure compost helps give your in-ground flowers, landscaping beds, and vegetable gardens the foundation they need to thrive. By amending your yard's native soil with this organic blend of aged and screened composted manure, you'll help promote healthy vegetation and growth. Steer manure naturally contains nitrogen, an essential nutrient plants require to grow healthy roots and stems. And because it contains little to no weeds, it's the perfect outdoor soil amendment for seeding grass. Compost manure blend also helps maintain soil moisture and aeration for better growing conditions.

How long should I leave steer manure set before I plant my vegetablies in it?

Asked by Mur April 28, 2021

Answers

I bought four bags to use when planting my new flowers and veggies this year. It came with a brand (not this clear packaging).

How big is the bag on a flat surface? I'm trying to figure out how many I can fit in my car.

Asked by Jacob April 23, 2021

Answers

I`m guessing a bag would measure about 16" x 26" x 5". But to keep your car from smelling like manure for a long time I would look for a friend that owns a pickup truck.

can this be mixed with existing soil to create the 4 inches for planting new grass seeds?

Asked by Newbe April 5, 2021

Answers

Newbe - Yes, I have done this successfully for many years... Please try to break up your existing soil, so it will drain the water deep, and this will be great for your grass seeds when they grow up and put down deep roots for that moisture.. Please remember that the grass seeds need to be sprinkled on top of the soil when it is all finished, and has fertilizer on it, and you only press down a little on all the seeds so that they are just a little ways deep into the existing soil, ok??? I just use the back of a leaf rake to go over the newly seeded lawn, and press down a little as I move it across all the soil.. The seeds do not to be completely or deeply covered in the soil.. They will need to be watered carefully for a few weeks, every day, sometimes, every few hours if they are in the sun a lot and the water dries out.. Once you start this process, you need to stick with it so the seeds have enough moisture to germinate and then put down little roots into the soil where they will go and seek moisture for the rest of their lives.. Good luck !!

How much does each bag weight?

Around 20 pounds but the weight varies because of the moisture content

I am getting ready to dethatch and scarify my yard. not entirely sure what to do first. manure/fertilizer? seed? topsoil. anyone have advice?

Asked by Chris February 8, 2021

Answers

You probably have your lawn in by now but I just saw your question. You need to mow your grass very short first and remove the clippings. Use a dethatching blade to scalp the rest of your lawn and remove any grass that is left. Weedeat around sprinklers or any high grass areas that are left. Make sure all of your sprinklers are working correctly. Now is the time to cover your yard with seed. I like to cover the seed with manure using a spreader designed for the job. Sweep off any seeds or manure back into the yard and turn on the sprinklers. Keep the seeds moist at all times (don't allow them to dry out). My perennial rye grass takes about 5 days to germinate with afternoon temps around 80-90 degrees and lows in the 50-60s.

I understand that works well, I hope its correct as I just did my yard and shrubs and flower bed yesterday watering it well , but I'm going to wait a week or so before planting any bulbs in flower bed, any suggestions would be great!! Right now, next door neighbors are not so happy w/using the steer manure... LOL ..... but when you have little 4 legged family members it's a lot safer alternative than chemicals

I understand chicken manure is not only more pugnet in smell, but also in nitrogen and other items that can enhance garden beds nicely. Please contact Scotts Earthgro Pros for better information In God We Trust

Lots of sticks
First the brand name is Grow King at the store not Earthgro. It says Steer Manure as the main label, but mentions manure and compost in the ingredients. It is not compost. Real compost looks like coffee grounds, not chunks of wood. It's supposed to be good to put on top of an over seeded lawn, but we sifted the chunks of wood out because they would be hard to mow. We were looking for pure Steer Manure like the label says.

I ordered manure blend for pickup and received straight steer manure when I arrived. I have purchased both in the past many times at Peoria Home Depot and the Grow King brand straight steer manure is cheaper.

Not Sterile
I used 2 bags in my garden. Now I have a lawn growing in my garden and I will have to spend an entire day removing each blade by hand. this might be great for a lawn fertilizer, don't use it in your garden.

I built my wife raised gardens 5 years ago and we have been battling my poor choice of initial soil from a local whole-seller ever sense, it was almost poisonous it was so bad!. This is the best soil builder product we have tried so far and we are looking forward to a vigorous healthy garden this year. We own horses but you don't want to use horse manure in your planting area or you will have nothing but weeds. I give this 4 1/2 stars... Yes there are some sticks and small rocks in it, and out of 10 bags we found 2 small pieces of white plastic bag it but its not that big of deal, and except for the plastic, all adds to soil aeration.. If you have ever been around any soil processing operations you will know how hard it is to avoid such minor inclusions in the final product and plastic litter is a world wide problem anymore and also tough to avoid. We put all 10 bags in one bed so we have about 40 more to get this season, We will definitely continue buying this stuff.

I moved to a place that had sandy/rocky soil with little to no life. It's a large area, so I needed lots of soil. Instead of buying tons of topsoil, I opted to buy manure that I could blend with the current soil and pray for the best. At first I thought this product was too smelly for my liking. After 5 days the smell went away. My plants love this stuff and I do too. Who would have know that I could say I love manure.
