Is this the same as using cow manure or is ot better to mix with manure or peat moss?

Asked by: Joe
Thank you for your question. This product helps retain moisture, helps control weed growth and helps insulate soil and does not need to be mixed to be effective.

1.5 cu. ft. Soil Conditioner is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from The quality of this product has declined dramatically in the... The quality of this product has declined dramatically in the last year. For many years, it was a rich brown color with very small flat pieces of material no larger than a pea with no sticks and no variation in color, just like picture on the product site. The older product blended very well into landscaping and I used it as a top coat, putting a new layer every couple of months since it easily broke down to create wonderful topsoil. It was easy to spread, especially in small spaces like seasonal flower beds. I also used it on bare spots in my grass because of it's fine consistency. About 2-3 months ago, however, this product changed considerably. The bags are now full of a denser, heavier variety of material containing a substantial amount of lighter tan-colored pieces that are stick-shaped and smell like cedar -- they don't break down at all and they stab at my fingers when spreading. So rather than getting a beautiful rich brown earthy product that easily becomes topsoil, the bags now have what looks like debris from a forest. It just lays there and does nothing productive for my soil. It's more like a mini version of pine bark than a soil conditioner. Very disappointing!! Home Depot should update the photo on their website because it completely misrepresents what these bags contain. A new vendor might also be in order if Oldcastle can't return to the prior quality. I personally switched to a product from a different vendor for the bare spots in my lawn and will be doing the same for the rest of my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I need for my container soil mix! I've been a long time fan of a container soil mix called Al's 5-1-1 (do a web search and you'll find out about it), but the sticking point for me has always been finding the pine bark fines that compose the biggest proportion of the mix. In the past I've had to buy mini pine bark and run it through a sieve to get the proper size for my soil mix. I was so thrilled to finally find a local source at Home Depot. This "Soil Conditioner" is actually ground pine fines, exactly what I need. The size is just right, so I just take 5 parts of the conditioner, and add 1 part sphagnum peat and 1 part Perlite, plus a few nutrients. I'll still run it through a sieve, but the amount of waste will be greatly reduced. Very happy with the purchase.

Worked out well when planting plants in a clay base, mixed it with soil in a 50;50 RATIO. Plants are looking good with all the rain we have had in the last few weeks. Have a great started before we get into the Dog Days of summer in Georgia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not a soil or compost but an amendment Soil amendment is not a soil or compost. This product is to be mixed with the clay or sand or whatever type of soil you've dug up. You mix this product with the soil that you dug out for your plant and then put that mix back in the hole around the plant. This product breaks down quickly helping to break up the clay and adding bulk to sand. I'm a landscape and garden designer and highly recommend this product. I use it all the time.
